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.

Quality comment
Very lactic, plummy and tropical already in the nose which very much translated into the cup itself, sparkling and refreshing, with medium lactic acidity and velvety body, well balanced and very sweet.
Grower (Pending)
It is a coffee characterised by its fruity aroma and flavour, round body with a fine acidity and a pleasant aftertaste.
