MORE INFO ABOUT THE COOP
This is the 5th year in a row we’ve purchased coffee from the El Triunfo project and we're already look forward to the 2017 crop. For us it’s a no brainer: the member farmers are not only committed to continually improving cup quality through technical education, facility upgrades and an ever-increasing attention to lot selection based on cup quality. Their commitment to sustainable agro-forestry is proved by their maintenance of bio-corridors through their farms and the multi-species shade canopy over their coffee trees to create a true buffer zone for the bordering El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve-- home of Mesoamerica’s largest contiguous Cloud Forest.
In addition to the Fair-Trade price paid to the coop, we pay an additional $.20 per pound for a quality and buffer-zone maintenance incentive. Finally, a third premium is paid for the farmer specific lots that we occasionally buy.
