Description

By taking its cues from the land, Monimbo farm has become a recognized leader in visionary coffee farming. Environmental awareness is reflected in the name, which translates to “close to the water,” and this spirit has helped drive success throughout the farm’s 75-year history, including the 30 years under the current owners, the Marenco family. Pride, commitment and continuous investment are apparent in steps such as allocating increasing amounts of forest land and maintaining 95% shade cover to help support the long-term health of the ecosystem.

The family works with a nonprofit organization to help a local school establish better facilities and educational opportunities for area students. Given this holistic, ultra-conscious approach, it’s no surprise that each crop Monimbo offers is truly special. This lot is particularly striking—balanced and sweet, round and chocolaty.
