Background Details

A select group of individual producers in the municipalities of San Juan del Río Coco and Telpaneca with the same focus on quality and environmental responsibility needed help finding an international market. So they established COOPCAFE in 2016 with 88 producers. Through the cooperative members have been able to earn organic certification and build needed infrastructure like a central warehouse. COOPCAFE collaborates with the Paguaga family for dry-milling services at Santa Lucila. The Paguaga family has their own award-winning coffee and vast experience preparing coffee for export. Santa Lucila has a cupping lab to help the cooperative with quality control before export. The result is a traceable community blend with a vibrant regional profile.
