Three siblings, Vidal, Carlos and Laura, inherited the estate from their parents who first started cultivating coffee in the region in the 1940s. Laura established an NGO called Manos Abiertas, which raises money to purchase medical equipment for the maternity and infant care hospital in Chiriqui. The family is also one uses earning from the sale of coffee to provide bonus for employees, school scholarships, death benefits, and medical brigades in the indigenous communities.
