La Pastora is grown in an area overooking the community of San Marcos in the high Tarrazu region of Costa Rica and near Volcan Poas.
All of the coffee cherries are harvested by hand. The coffee cherries are then conveyed to Cooptarrazu where it is wet processed in their large, high quality operation. This coffee is segregated from others and bagged under the La Pastora label.
CoopeTarrazu RL was established in 1970 (same year that Cape Cod Coffee started roasting in Hyannis, Ma) and since that time has become one of the major contributors to the economic development in the Los Santos region of Tarrazu. Annually, the coop employs approximately 10,000 people; either directly in coffee production or in a supporting role.
CoopeTarrazu works in partnership with the organization Earthwatch to continue advancements in research and development of sustainable practices for agricultural production.
Cupping Characteristics: Clean, sweet cupping. Citrusy, orange and tangerine. Milk chocolate mouth feel and creamy texture.
