In the 1960s Juan Hipp Sr. purchased land on the high altitude mahogany and cedar filled mountains of Santa Barbara where the microclimate is optimal for coffee.
After three generations, the coffee this land produces has been the passion and livelihood of many families in surrounding villages.
For many years, Honduras has been considered as an underdog in the speciality coffee world. Recognized as a quantity over quality origin coffee. At Monte Vista Farm we have never compromised for quantity. Juan Hipp Jr. has been growing coffee with his father since the age of 13 and never took quality for granted.
In addition to fair labor practices, we donate water and electric utility to the surrounding communities and contribute to the education and well being of every individual who helps in the process of giving us this amazing coffee.
