The coffee story

Created in 2016, Coopagro is a new yet promising co-operative. One year after their foundation the co-op was the national winner of Peru’s Cup of Excellence. The following year, they placed third. Innovative, Coopagro’s team has recently visited Costa Rica to learn about agroforestry systems in coffee farms and shade management. They are also starting to produce honey process lots due to the smaller use and contamination of water. Able to produce around 55 containers per season, their regional blends are grown at up to 1700 m.

“We are promoting the honey process as an eco-friendly method. As it requires more time and investment and we are not sure when coffee shops will reopen, we will focus on what we do best this year, the washed lots. There will be some volume of naturals and honeys too because some growers want to take the chance but we want to feel the market.”

FAQ

Shipping
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.

When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
