This coffee does not have fair trade or organic certifications. It does however, meet other social criteria we are excited about. Meet CoopeTarrazu. This cooperative is working towards increasing the quality of individual communities' coffee. How? By allowing traceable micro-lots come through their cooperative. The better quality the coffee is, the more they can charge.Their coffee is sold at a premium, and the profit made goes back to that community, and the community decides how they want to spend the money. How have they spent their money?
Each community has chosen various things, as this program is in its third year. Some have built roads, fresh water tanks, improved children's school conditions, and the list goes on.
Good things happen when capitalism and social good connect in these ways. We are proud to carry this coffee from the La Trinidad community.
