We visited the San Martin de Tarrazú Mountains in 2016 as part of our investment into cooperative coffee. San Martin is a very small hamlet at the very highest elevations of the Tarrazu coffee-growing region.

This coffee has been produced entirely by smallholder farmers of the community of San Martin de Tarrazú Mountains, which is one of Costa Rica’s most famous coffee growing regions.

The farmers are all members of Coopetarrazú, a coffee cooperative founded in 1960 by only 228 small coffee growers from across the region.

Today, the cooperative is one of Costa Rica’s most prominent, with members numbering more than 3,000 and over 250 permanent staff. They run the largest wet mill in Costa Rica, processing more than 110,000 bags of green coffee annually, even though approximately 85% of the cooperative’s members are overwhelmingly small scale, farming on 4 hectares or less.

For 2016, we have brought to market two community lots that not only contribute towards Coopetarrazú’s sustainable development efforts but also demonstrate that investments in quality in life really can have huge impacts on the quality of the cup

All our coffee is sold as whole beans, which we recommend for optimum flavour and freshness.
