Founded in 2015 by Aliss Hartmann, Finca Momoto is a new branch on the storied Hartmann family tree. Aliss and her four siblings grew up at Finca Hartmann, playing amongst the coffee trees and climbing on bags of stored parchment at the mill. As adults, the Hartmann children each took roles at Finca Hartmann – Aliss managing the administrative side of the business. As her own children, Giuliana and Giuseppe grew up, she wanted them to have a similar childhood to herself. She purchased Finca Momoto to teach them the value of the land, respect for nature, and to share with them the same love and passion for coffee that her parents shared with her. Aliss applies an environmentally sustainable approach to coffee production, with most of the coffee from Finca Momoto processed using the natural method, eliminating the need for significant water usage. Laurina (aka Bourbon Pointu) is a natural mutation of the Bourbon variety and has half the caffeine of most Arabica varieties. This is the first time we’ve purchased Laurina, and it’s fitting that it’s from one of our longest producer relationships.
