Coffee Story:

Monteverde is a small community in Puntarenas, located high in the Cordillera de Tilaran mountain range of Costa Rica. High elevation, shade trees and the cool temperate climate of the cloud forest allows the coffee to ripen slowly, developing flavors that exhibit and represent quality. After the coffee is selectively handpicked, it is “honey” processed at a nearby wet mill. The honey process is a method in which the outer skin of the cherry is removed, and the coffee is dried on raised beds with mucilage still attached. Differing percentages of intact mucilage around the bean, gives way to a variety of flavors and mouthfeels that can be experienced.

Since 1989, Montana Coffee Traders has been working successfully with coffee farmers of the Monteverde region of Costa Rica. Our partnership and premium price paid directly to these producers aids them with their goal of continued coffee excellence, while also encouraging opportunities to expand their farms, businesses and knowledge in a rapidly changing economic environment.

Dedicated to conservation, education, and social programs in and around the Monteverde Cloud Forest of Costa Rica, Montana Coffee Traders also gives a percentage back from annual sales to this coffee growing community. The monies have helped these growers invest in new farming and processing equipment, expanded ecological farm tours and the building of a coffee roasting and tasting lab. The lab has allowed a shared learning process for farmers to taste their coffee and for travelers to experience the rich and unique flavors of the Monteverde, Costa Rica.
