Our History

Hacienda Miramonte

Started by a woman a century ago…

Located in the region of Naranjo-Alajuela, in Costa Rica, Hacienda Miramonte is renown for the high quality coffee beans it produces, and a tradition of bean cultivation carefully handed down through generations. Closing in on a century of existence, the first page of Miramonte’s beautiful history was written by a woman who broke down the barriers of her time and society in search of her entrepreneurial ideal.

With bravery and courage, the matriarch of the Gurdian’s family, Lucila Duval de Morales decided in 1917, to plant coffee. She acquired lands in the city of Heredia, and built a well-structured, prosperous plantation. This coffee farm represents the finest beans produced in Costa Rica. The matriarch’s love for coffee added to the quality of her product, making Hacienda Miramonte a legendary place.

Her work, dedication, and determination was passed down to future generations, and her unwavering dedication set an example that inspired her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  Today, Lucila’s great-grandson, Ricardo Gurdian is the owner and operator, running the plantation with the same diligence and passion for coffee with which his ancestor started. Ricardo’s focus and forward thinking for progressive and alternative processes continues to refine the product quality. Respect for the environment, and the community ensures that we derive the ultimate flavor from our beans.

In the early days of coffee plantation, workers got tokens for their daily coffee pickings, and once a week they exchanged them for money. One of the original tokens was the “Willows,” and it is this symbol of multiple generations of hard work and effort that now represents our brand. Ricardo now counts on his daughter, Viviana, to continue running the Willows brand and bringing their coffee to the forefront of the industry.
