Description

Costa Rica is one of the top producers of coffee, and, as their number three export, is incredibly important to the country’s economy. Arabica coffee was first introduced to the country from Ethiopia in the late 1770’s. Like many countries’ governments, the Costa Rican government encouraged farming by offering plots of land to farmers who wanted to grow and harvest the plants. By 1829, coffee production was a larger source of revenue than tobacco, cacao, and sugar cane. Today, many Nicaraguan immigrants are seasonal workers, employed on plantations to harvest coffee during peak seasons.

In 1960 a group of coffee producers came together to create the Naranjo Coffee Growers and Multiple Services Cooperative, LLC, in order to pool their efforts for coffee processing. They purchased their own mill and implemented measures to improve coffee quality and production in addition to educating the members about sustainable farming practices and providing agricultural technical assistance. La Rosa comes from four farms located in the Naranjo district. Naranjo is divided into 29 coffee growing areas that are “blessed for coffee” enjoying ideal growing conditions – soil, altitude, rainfall, and temperature – that combine to produce a unique coffee with delicate aroma, mild body and pleasing taste. The co-op has successfully improved the coffee production of its members and enhanced their communities socially, financially, and sustainably.
