We are excited to be offering this amazing coffee with a fascinating story! Our newest Costa Rican coffee comes from a co-op of farmers who started the Farmers Project - here is a little information on what they do and how they got started:
"Farmers Project was founded by Jonathan Jost and Marianella Baez Jost of Café Con Amor. When they gave up their corporate jobs to follow their passion as coffee farmers in Costa Rica, they were struck by how hard local farmers worked, only to sell their coffee for prices that could not sustain the most basic lifestyle.
The Farmers Project was started to help local farmers in Costa Rica sell their coffee for a fair price to support their workers, their farms, and their families. Sharing this vision, farmers could learn from one another, share best practices, and export their specialty coffee together." - https://www.farmersproject-cr.com
Here is the story behind the El Greco:
Producers: Rodrigo Oviedo

"Traveling towards the Poas Volcano, and thru the small bustling town of Grecia, sugar cane fields lead the way to the mountains where coffee is king. El Greco, has been in the Oviedo family for over 50 years, today, Rodrigo, a third generation coffee farmer is determined to produce microlots under his artisan process which produce a unique cup that will warm your soul.
Rodrigo’s father valued education and taught Rodrigo and his siblings the importance of school and coffee farming from a young age. Rodrigo introduced a more sustainable business model to the family farm. Café Greco produces a special coffee nurtured with care and processed with traceability and quality." - http://www.cafeconamor-cr.com/greco/
