THEIR STORY

CoopeTarrazu, founded in 1960, is a cooperative that works with various communities throughout the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica. In addition to offering market access, resources, and fair prices to growers, the cooperative also has an experimental farm on which different varieties, milling processes, drying techniques, and inputs and pesticides are tested. The farm, called Finca Las Cuadras, is managed by members for the benefit of the entire Terrazu community.

ON THE MAP

The rich sediment, high elevations and tropical climate make San Marcos de Tarrazu a perfect location for coffee growing.

THE COOPERATIVE

Sedimentary soil composition encourages coffee crops toward a distinct acidity, and this rich mountain soil creates a complex fruit to be harvested and processed by CoopeTarrazú.

The co-op represents over 3,500 partners in the province, and is committed to the welfare of those partners and their communities. We roast their coffee to bring out its syrupy, balanced character, finding gingersnap, almond, and plum in the cup.
