Café de Monteverde was born in 1989 as an association of 12 families with deep roots in coffee, agriculture, conservation, and education. For over four generations, their families have worked to provide the best quality coffee in the Monteverde Region. Central to their mission has been educating visitors in environmental preservation. Life Monteverde was later organized in 2008 to better provide these educational opportunities and activities for local community members and visitors alike. Café de Monteverde is proud to promote both the coffee economy of its local farmers and simultaneously increase awareness about sustainability in day-to-day life.
