Monte Verde is one of my family's farms and it is managed by my mom Hilda and my father Renee Contreras. The farm has been in my family since the days of my great-grandfather, a Guatemalan sugar cane producer who came to El Salvador in the late 1800s to marry my great-grandmother, a coffee producer. We process all the coffees from our farms in wet mill inside Monverde farm focusing on micro-lots. As a company, we invest in social projects and education at El Paste school. We organize free medical care days to provide appointments to the workers and supply them monthly bags with basic food items.

Los Cipreses Farm
It has been more than 100 years since 5 generations of coffee farmers of the Contreras and Pimentel family began coffee cultivation in Monte Verde in 1915, close to El Chingo volcano in Santa Ana, El Salvador. Yesterday as today, we continue harvesting the best fruits of the arabic variety of Bourbon and Pacas, which are submitted in washing processes, honey and natural to highlight its citrus and ﬂoral ﬂavors, chocolate in a clean cup, great fragrance and natural sweetness. In this century Contreras Valdez family has a collection of medium and small farmers who sell their products in the domestic and international markets, with the seal of excellence and good agricultural and manufacturing practices, that our customers demand without neglecting sustainability, environment and the corporate social responsibility of its employees.
