Finca Monte Verde was acquired originally by Mr. Alejandrino Gutierrez, passed on to his son Oscar Gutierrez Ramirez and in turn to grandson Gildardo Gutierrez Tejada. Gildardo decided to plant varieties with excellent cup potential.  Gildardo raised his children on the farm and have lived there for 50 years, always cultivating coffee.  His three sons are graded cuppers, and have encouraged his father to engage in a direct relationship trade with customers in the US.
