Oikocredit's coffee partner COOPETARRAZÚ is a cooperative of small-scale coffee producers that processes and sells sustainably produced coffee. In this video Ricardo Zúñiga Monge, Agricultural Engineer at COOPETARRAZÚ, explains how COOPETARRAZU improved the coffee harvest using environmentally friendly methods. Today COOPETARRAZU's coffee is considered among the best in the world thanks to a favourable acidity level, excellent flavour and body. The cooperative’s own brands of roasted and ground coffee (Buen Día and El Marqués) are enjoying strong sales.
COOPETARRAZU has been awarded with various certifications, including Fair Trade and organic, thanks to its focus on social and environmental best practices.
