We are excited to present our newest offering, La Trinidad Honey, from the Leon Cortes region in Costa Rica. The La Trinidad Community is a special one. This small producing community is enrolled in the Community Coffee Program at Coopetarrazu, which allows coffee buyers to separate out lots from specific communities that score over 86 points and pay a quality premium that the individual communities receive directly. As a community, they can decide how they want to use the money in order to improve coffee production and their livelihood. The program serves as a motivator as well as an incentive for farmers to continue to produce quality coffee in return for better roads, schools, and water. The Community Coffees project was developed by Coopetarrazu to grant credibility to specific farms who produce cherry that is collected from the peak of the harvest from high-altitude communities. Cherry is traceable to the the community or micro-region so that farmers are able to directly receive higher premium. We are proud through our importer, to support the Community Coffees project, and know that you will enjoy La Trinidad Honey in your cup as much as we have.
