The battle(s) of Trenton marked a turning point in the Revolutionary War. When General George Washington lead his men across the frigid Delaware River, the night was crisp, clear, and the men were alert and ready to start their country!  I don't know if this bright crisp Costa Rican could've done any better than the crisp night air, but maybe!

 

We currently get this coffee from Royal Coffee who have been working with Hacienda La Amistad for some time.  From Royal, this is what they have to say about this incredible farm.

 **************************

So consistent and tasty is the coffee from Hacienda la Amistad that it shines not only in the cup, but in its commitment to the environment and community. It’s remarkable that 97% of the land that Roberto Montero’s grandfather first purchased in the early 1900s has been dedicated to forest preservation, with 6,000 of the original 10,000 hectares given back to the government of Costa Rica for the for the preservation of La Amistad International Park, the largest natural reserve in Central America. With the 4,000 hectares that have remained in this third-generation coffee farmer’s possession, Montero has dedicated 300 hectares to organic coffee production and most of the rest is forested and teeming with wildlife. Roberto’s commitment to organic farming pairs harmoniously with his commitment to his community. La Amistad’s proximity to the border of Panama has attracted many indigenous people from that country who come to the farm during harvest season with their entire families. Roberto ensures their needs are met by providing housing and free access to medical care for the seasonal pickers. Roberto also takes pride in his ability to provide more than 100 full-time jobs to his neighbors from Las Mellizas, not only in coffee cultivation, but also in the dried fruit operation that he runs year-round at La Amistad. Roberto hosts an annual employee celebration to recognize all their hard work and he also distributes school supplies to their children each year before school starts.
***************************

Hacienda La Amistad is located in Coto Brus, in the province of Puntarenas, Costa Rica.  The farm is owned and operated by Roberto Montero, a third generation coffee farmer. Roberto is doing great things in the arena of sustainable farming.  They take care to keep land and water supplies clean and unpolluted and treat their workers well. Much of their land is rainforest, which is home to some awesome wildlife.  While La Amistad doesn't only grow coffee, you need to try this seriously legit organic coffee!

My favorite!

The Trenton reminds me of the coffee we actually had in Costa Rica at Tamarindo Coffee Roasters, when we were in Guancanaste province. It's like going back there every time I have a cup!
