The San Francisco community is behind this coffee and, after beginning in 2014 with 12 producer families, its number has swelled to 40 within a few years. Located in San Francisco de León Cortés, the community's location on the edge of the famous Tarrazu canton has enabled these producers to work with Coope Tarrazu, an organisation with a focus on highlighting the special characteristics of the micro-zones in the region.
2020 was a year of low production in Costa Rica, with intermittent and unpredictable rain affecting the crop yield as well as slowing down the harvest and complicating the drying process. This is particularly hazardous for the drying of naturally processed coffees.
We really feel lucky therefore that the quality and cleanliness of this natural coffee has come through despite this testing year - it is a reminder of the huge variety of challenges that has confronted our connected world in the last year.
