About the Farms:
In a spectacular region of Costa Rica known as the "Land of the Saints", farmers work tirelessly to care for this beautiful Costa Rican Tarrazu coffee. The main suppliers of this Costa Rican coffee represent small micro mills and traditional coops, ensuring only the highest quality cherries are obtained for production of this authentic Tarrazu coffee.
During the growth, harvest and processing of these coffee beans, all coffee pickers and producers are supplied with insurance, medical services, housing and transportation to the farming facilities.
There is a premium paid for the extra work and attention that goes into these coffees, and that premium supports the entire cooperative, as an incentive to continue these types of labor-intensive but worthwhile programs and projects.
