Tasting Notes: Lingonberry, Rooibos, Sweet Meringue
Monteverde is a small community in Puntarenas, located 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 processed at a nearby wet mill and then sun dried on patios and shaded raised beds.
Since 1989, Montana Coffee Traders has been working successfully with coffee farmers of the Monteverde region. With emphasis on conservation, education, and social programs in and around the Monteverde Cloud Forest. Montana Coffee Traders 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.
