Story

The communities program has been running with Coope Tarrazu since 2012, and was designed to help promote the individual characteristics of the coffee in ‘micro-zones’ of the Tarrazu region.

The coffee of the Tarrazú region is one of the most recognized in Costa Rica and in the world and represents around 40% of the national production. Most of the plantations are under shade, with different trees in the area.

This is a small community of producing families who have an annual production capacity of around 50 bags, with all 35 producing families working together to do so. Each of the producing families depend on coffee as a livelihood, and are committed to working together through all stages of the coffee process to ensure the coffee that is harvested is of excellent quality.

Why We're different

Our home Ammanford in south west Wales, a post industrial community where Anthracite coal (Black Gold) fueled the local economy. Back in 2003 the last of the colliers closed and with it went our town’s purpose. Coaltown’s ambition was to bring a new industry to our home, a new Black Gold, a new purpose. In 2018 we achieved just that, our town is producing again.

This time it’s a new Black Gold - Coffee.
