Cloza Estate is a family owned farm and micro mill operation located in Costa Rica. Dedicated to growing and processing coffee since 1970, they operate two farms in Naranjo (El Rosario) and Alajuela (Sabanilla de Poas). Three generations strong, the family is inspired by the passion to produce excellent quality coffee. Guided by Don Clodoveo Zamora and his wife Doña Jeannette, Kathia’s parents, Kathia began managing the family business in 2000. As founding members of the IWCA (International Women Coffee Alliance)-Costa Rica Chapter, Kathia has served on the Board of Directors and continues to participate in the chapters’ ongoing initiatives. In 2015, Cloza Estate was awarded the certification: Women Care Certified. This certification represents a great achievement for a family who is committed to supporting the empowerment of women in the coffee industry and continues to be a role model for women in coffee.
Today, under Kathia’s management, the farm is focused on improving quality, applying sustainable farming practices, lowering their carbon footprint, protecting the environment and providing fair wages for their workers. Quality and traceability are very important to this family, as they work hard to keep their coffee
