Formed in 1967 with 30 member farms, the Cooperativa Río Azul has since grown to over 240 members. Río Azul provides better market access to its members than they might otherwise get, and operate a mill where water is used conservatively and compost is created and given back to its members for use. This coffee comes from Río Azul’s Organic-certified lots, and all of the co-op is Fair Trade Certified.
The local rate for coffee was less than the cost of production, but our importers paid 2x the cost of production, and paid for transportation from the farms to the mill.
