Hacienda la Amistad Costa Rica is owned and operated by Roberto Montero, a third-generation coffee farmer. Roberto’s grandfather came to the area in the early 1900's as part of a team surveying the border between Costa Rica and Panama. Roberto’s grandfather purchased over 10,000 hectares of land and began to cultivate coffee. Roberto’s family has returned more than 6,000 hectares of land to the government of Costa Rica for the preservation of La Amistad International Park, the largest natural reserve in Central America. Only 300 hectares of land are used for coffee cultivation while the remainder of the 4,000-hectare estate is preserved forest teeming with wildlife. Roberto’s commitment to organic farming pairs harmoniously with his commitment to his community. During the coffee harvest, Roberto provides housing and free access to medical care for the seasonal pickers because most are indigenous people from Panama who come to La Amistad with their entire families. Roberto also takes pride in his ability to provide more than 100 full-time jobs to his neighbors from Las Mellizas, not only in coffee cultivation but also in the dried fruit operation that he runs year-round at La Amistad. Roberto hosts an annual employee celebration to recognize all of their hard work and to distribute school supplies to all the children before school starts.
