Finca “El Alto” is owned and operated by the Monge Falas family, headed by Don Carlos Alberto Garbanzo. The farm has been handed down through 3 generations starting with Carlos’ grandfather. Finca “El Alto” was given its name by Carlos’ wife, Rose Mary, because of the height of the mountains that surround them. The farm was first used for cultivating corn and beans with one dedicated area for raising livestock. Once Don Carlos took over the duties of the farm, he replaced the crops with coffee plants which he has been maintaining for over 25 years. Don Carlos hopes the love and care he puts into his farm enables his coffee production to showcase its unique and complex cup profile.
