Costa Rican Tarrazu is a strong, clean finishing coffee with naturally sweet, chocolate undertones.
This Costa Rican coffee comes from the region of Tarrazu and is grown exclusively at the La Pastora Co-Op. Our Costa Rican Tarrazu is Rainforest Alliance Certified and is grown by a cooperative of fair trade farmers. Although our particular microlot of coffee is not Fair Trade Certified, it is Rain Forest Alliance Certified.
This cooperative of farmers and growers work to give back to their community and protect the environment. As part of this sustainable business model, the cooperative operates a profitable grocery store and cooperative members all have access to healthcare and low interest rate loans. The cooperative also prioritizes the environment in their work through environmental protection initiatives and support programs for migrant workers. They also naturally sun-dry their crop, making this some of the best coffee around.
