Cental Valley coop w/ blends & single-farm lots

Coopelibertad R.L. was born in 1961, in one of the most significant moments for cooperativism in Costa Rica and it came to represent a solution for coffee producers in the Heredia area to obtain better results from their agricultural work. Since the foundation, the Cooperative has worked shoulder to shoulder with its associates, in the search for the common good, and thus to support the improvement of its economic and social situation; through the cultivation of coffee. In a large number of farms distributed through the Cental Valley, the cooperative associates are concerned about taking care of the coffee plants. Mainly cultivated with varieties such as Caturra and Catuaí, each farmer applies sustainable techniques that will benefit their productivity and cup quality. From September until March, the cherry is collected from the farms and then is taken to the mill. The coffee fruit goes through each of the operational steps constantly monitored by strictly quality controls.

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.
