BEHIND THE CUP

La Trinidad is a community lot selected and processed by CoopeTarrazu in the León Cortés area of the Tarrazu region. This program allows separation of lots from specific communities that score the best and they are paid a quality premium. The individual communities receive and decide as a group how the money will be used to improve their coffee production and livelihood. Examples in previous years of the program have seen the premiums used to build roads, large water tanks to store fresh water for the community, roofs for schools, and many other projects.

Started in 1960 with fewer than 300 farmers, the co-op was created in an attempt to step forward in the coffee industry. CoopeTarrazu was established to bring control of regional commercial activities back to the farmers, concerned for both the well being of the farmers and the economic development of the region and to stop the unfair practices of the bigger commercial forces.

TASTING NOTES

The tropical, sweetness of this coffee is what drives the character in the cup, but if you look for it you will find there are rich notes of pear and raisin balanced with toffee apple on the finish.
