San Marcos

de Tarrazú

The community consists of many small farms around San Marcos de Tarrazú de Costa Rica. On October 13, 1960, 228 coffee farmers came together to form a community! Now they have over 60 years of experience and work exclusively according to the basic principles such as honor and sustainability. Today, almost 5000 coffee farmers live and work together in a great supportive way.

The idea: Coopetarrazú!

Coopetarrazú maintains strict quality controls, works with traceability from the planting of the seedlings to the export of the raw bean! The quality standards are regularly reviewed each farmer receives full support from the community.
The cooperative has its own highly qualified staff and a quality control laboratory that follows a strict protocol. We have visited the site several times and are totally amazed by the harmony & dynamism of this community.
The coffee of the Tarrazú region is one of the most famous in Costa Rica and the world, accounting for 40% of the national production. This production is located between 1,200 and 1,900 meters above sea level with ideal climate and soil conditions for cultivation. Most plantations are in the shade, with trees in the surrounding area.

Coffee is exported mainly to markets in the United States, Europe and Asia, where the La Pastora, Tarrazú brand is known for its high acidity, medium body, extra hard beans and very good aroma.
An outstanding farmer in Tarrazú is Don Ricardo. He is our local partner for the microlots.

Das Trocknen in der Sonne Costa Ricas gut den Bohnen besonders gut! Ein herrlich aromatischer, sonnengereifter Geschmack ist die Folge!
