Since founding the Zalmari Coffee Estate in the 1920s, the Murray family have woven their values into their work: protect the environment with sustainable business practices, support the Cachí community, farm top-quality coffee.
Cecilia and Marigold are longtime members of the IWCA-Costa Rica (International Women’s Coffee Alliance).
