"Mr. Rene grew up listening to the stories of his grandparents about how they formed what today is, Finca Monte Verde, a beautiful family project, a legacy of sacrifice and passion from over 100 years of experience.
He improved and, by diversifying the varieties of coffee, implement better post-harvest practices, new processing techniques such as honey, natural, controlled fermentation, and new farms.
Los Cipreses is a paradise among the clouds whose height allows us to appreciate the fusion of our country with Guatemala surrounded by majestic vegetation and fauna and where the day begins next to our pickers enjoying a delicious cup of coffee.
Being a coffee grower in El Salvador has not been an easy task. However, teamwork, perseverance, and love for her patrimony have given Rene the necessary tools not only to produce a coffee of excellent quality but also to grow as an independent coffee grower and making the family business grow and creating the opportunity to contribute to the development of Monte Verde where the farm is located." - Keffa
