This is one freshly roasted organic coffee that you Costa Rican fans will not want to miss. It is a great smooth and clean organic coffee on the sweet and nutty side, a bit chocolaty as one pushes past a medium roast. It has a great balance with floral and soft fruit tones that push this cup well beyond the normal Costa Rica organic coffees.
Hacienda la Amistad, located in Coto Brus, a canton in the province of Puntarenas, Costa Rica, is owned and operated by Roberto Montero, a third generation coffee farmer. Roberto’s grandfather first came to the area in the early 1900’s as part of a team surveying the border between Costa Rica and the newly formed country of Panama. Roberto’s grandfather later purchased over 10,000 hectares of land and began to cultivate coffee. Roberto’s family has returned more than 6,000 hectares of land to the government of Costa Rica for the preservation of La Amistad International Park, the largest natural reserve in Central America. Only 300 hectares of land are utilized for coffee cultivation while the remainder of the 4,000 hectare estate is preserved forest teeming with wildlife.Roberto’s commitment to organic farming pairs harmoniously with his commitment to his community. During the coffee harvest, Roberto provides housing and free access to medical care for the seasonal pickers because most are indigenous people from Panama who come to La Amistad with their entire families. Roberto also takes pride in his ability to provide more than 100 full-time jobs to his neighbors from Las Mellizas, not only in coffee cultivation, but also in the dried fruit operation that he runs year round at La Amistad. Roberto hosts an annual employee celebration to recognize all their hard work and he also distributes school supplies to their children each year before school starts.
It is medium bodied and on the medium to low acidity side at most roasts. A cup everyone will love.

Who Are We (Bowers Lake Coffee)?
We are an organic coffee roasting company located outside of Whitewater, WI near the nice, albeit small, Bowers Lake.Currently, there are Five of us (Family owned) involved in this roasting organic coffee business with one Master Roaster, Dave 'Papa' Jones, who has been roasting his own coffee for the last 25 years. We are veteran owned and operated meaning that 3 of us are Veterans (2 Army and 1 Navy) and the other 2 are veteran wives. In our opinion, the veteran wives are just as important to the military and are truly under appreciated.
Why Are the Owners of Bowers Lake Coffee Doing This?
We started this business because we are not impressed with most of the mass produced coffees that we see on the market today as well as some of the fair trade coffee that is in many non-roasting coffee shops and health food stores. This coffee that they are selling is mostly old and stale with a bitter aftertaste that does not please the palate.While we have only been around since the beginning of 2018, we have big plans for the future and you will see us around at some of the southern Wisconsin farmers markets, shows, and events.
Bowers Lake Coffee's Pledge to You
Our pledge to you is that our coffee will always be 100% organic, it will always be roasted upon your order and will never sit in our shop getting stale. Freshly roasted organic coffee will remain fresh for 3 weeks after roasting and can be frozen or placed in containers with a degassing valve to maintain the freshness for an even longer period of time.
