The Community Coffee program with CoopeTarrazu has made a real impact on the communities that deliver cherry to this mill.This program has allowed import partner to separate out lots from specific communities that score over 86 points and pay a quality premium that the individual communities get to receive and decide as a group how the money will be used to improve their coffee production and their livelihood.The premiums used to build roads, build large water tanks to store fresh water for the community, building roofs for the children’s schools, and many other projects that have had a direct impact on these communities.This program has motivated these producers to keep upping their quality, and we are very excited with the quality of the San Isidro coffee.
