In 1977, Mr. Samuel Coto Escobar purchased Finca El Platanillo.

He managed it until 1985. In 1985 the farm management was passed to Samuel’s youngest son, Mr. Stuardo Coto. Since then, management has focused on the ecosystem, the community, coffee quality and productivity.

“At Finca El Platanillo, Stuardo has managed to create an environment compliant with certifications and with his own personal quest to find the balance between the ecosystem and a productive coffee plantation as a wholesome unit. Close monitoring of flora and fauna has led to a rich environment where the ecosystem and the plantation planning go hand in hand. Protecting the ecosystem is a principle that has guided all the constant improvement that the farm undertakes each year. Because this principle was always a priority, by the time certification programs such as RFA (Rainforest Alliance), Starbucks’ “Café Practices”, 4C, etc. came into existence; Finca El Platanillo was already in compliance with most of the requirements to obtain these certifications. Keeping Rainforest Alliance from 2005 to this day, and pioneering RFA’s Climate Module as the first farm in the world to implement this once “extra sustainable” now RFA’s standard program.

    Best coffee I’ve had in a while! Super rich and tasty. The aroma alone is to die for.
