COSTA RICA - La Laguna
Characteristics: Chocolate, lemon, peach, floral
The communities program has been running with Co-op Tarrazu since 2012, and was designed to help promote the individual characteristics of the coffee in ‘micro-zones’ of the Tarrazu region.
The coffee of the Tarrazú region is one of the most recognized in Costa Rica and in the world and represents around 40% of the national production. Most of the plantations are under shade, with different trees in the area.
In the district of San Marcos, La Laguna de Tarrazú is one of those communities that regularly contribute to our line up of Costa Rican coffees. This is a small community of producing families who have an annual production capacity of around 50 bags, with all 35 producing families working together to do so.
Each of the producing families depend on coffee as a livelihood, and are committed to working together through all stages of the coffee process to ensure the coffee that is harvested is of excellent quality.
