The communities programme has been running with Coope Tarrazu since 2012, and was designed to help promote the individual characteristics of the coffee in the micro-zones of the Tarrazu region. La Trinidad is one of those communities that each year contribute to the line up of Costa Rican coffees.
This year is an off year for production, meaning a slightly lower production of cherry. This is part of the natural phenology of the plant; as cherry grows on the previous year’s branch growth, but does mean this is even more limited than normal.
The coffee of the Tarrazú region is one of the most recognized in Costa Rica and in the world and represents 40% of the national production. This production is between 1,200 and 1,900 metres above sea level, in ideal climate and soil conditions for cultivation. Most of the plantations are under shade, with different trees in the area.
