At the highest elevation of 5200 feet, you will find a micro lot of 100% Bourbon coffee called Montecristo. This small lot of coffee is exclusively prepared for Fratello Coffee in the North American market. Johann is a 3rd generation coffee farmer who has been committed to the quality of not only the coffee they grow but also the lifestyles of their workers and community around them. 

Roasting Hours

We roast online orders on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  All orders are assigned to our roast schedule by 10am Mondays, and any orders placed after that time will be scheduled to roast the following week. Recurring orders are charged on Fridays and ship by the following Tuesday.

This farm is meticulously keeping up with, and surpassing the standards of Rainforest Alliance certification, providing free health care and school for the 60 children that live full time on the estate (grades 1-6 as well as computer class), he is almost ready to open his 3rd classroom which will host grades 7-9. What excites us the most is that he is now going to open these classes up to the families that do not live on the farm. This proves his commitment to continually improve the community which lives around the estate.

It has schools, housing and many other facilities for its many permanent workers as well as for any workers that come just for the harvest. The schools are also available for the surrounding community that does not work for the farm. Montecristo has been part of the community for over 40 years, and the farm manager, Don Gustavo, has been a vital part of it for over 30 years!
