In 1928, brother and sister Manuel and Romelia Rojas were among the first families to plant coffee in Tarrazú. After experiencing the quality of the Rojas’ coffee, and its distinctive acidity and aroma, the majority of the farmers in the area also changed their crops from sugar to coffee.
Having no immediate relatives, the Rojas family eventually sold their farm and mill to Roberto Montero Castro.
Don Roberto fell in love with the pure air, crystal waters and breath-taking slopes of San Marcos de Tarrazú. He completely dedicated himself to his passion for coffee and was known for offering consultative services and assistance in farming techniques to the other farmers of Tarrazú.
The soil, climate and altitude of Tarrazú produce coffees that are tremendously distinctive, and Tarrazú Don Roberto consistently embodies this.
