The coffee story

CoopeAgri is located in the Region Brunca in the south of Costa Rica. This is one of Costa Rica's biggest areas for coffee plantation and other agricultural products.

Average Altitude: 1400 to 2100 meters above sea level
Topography: mountainous, hilly
Soil Type: volcanic
Temperature: 22°C
Humidity: 70%
Particularities: Young coffee plantations between 3 and 5 years of active production, specially separated from the field where it is marked and transported separately to the processing plant.

The name of this coffee was given in the honour of Don Claudio, the first president of the CoopeAgri project. He was concerned about the situation of growers in the 1950s and 1960s. While everyone was looking for their own benefit, it was Don Claudio who sought to create a sense of unity and find solutions to economical problems. This year the special Don Claudio coffee produced by CoopeAgri participated in the Cup of Excellence contest, having passed the first stage.

Traditional coop in Pérez Zeledón w/ high quality

CoopeAgri was founded on 25 November 1962 in San Isidro de Pérez Zeledón. Today with more than 6,000 active members, it has become a leading company that has driven economic growth in the southern part of Costa Rica. In the 1950s and 1960s, Pérez Zeledón had a very poor road infrastructure, which made coffee trading difficult. It was in the hands of private enterprise, which reduced producers' participation in the value chain. A group of local people saw that the needs of coffee producers could lead to the birth of a cooperative organisation, and it was in 1960 when this group set up a coop, then with 391 associates. Fairtrade premium-funded projects include a medical clinic, community store and the construction of 160 coffee stores over an area of 90 square kilometres. Farmers deliver their coffee to the stores for collection and transport to the washing station, saving them considerable time and expense. An interest-free loans scheme for growers makes much-needed credit available. Our main brand is Café Don Claudio, a coffee that comes from the surroundings of the Chirripó Mountain, which is the highest in all Central America.
