Explore the rich history of Costa Rican coffee through Gillies' selection – Coopetarrazú's exceptional beans from the Tarrazu Valley. Introduced in 1779 from Cuba, Costa Rican coffee saw its first exportation in 1820, quickly surpassing cacao, tobacco, and sugar production within fifty years. In the Tarrazu Valley, where coffee trees were planted in 1850 at elevations of 1200-1700 m., the combination of altitude and nutrient-rich soil produces a distinctively intense flavor, making the Tarrazu mark renowned.

Coopetarrazú, founded in 1960 by 228 small farmers in San Marcos, has evolved into a powerhouse with 4,650 members and a green coffee processing capacity of 250,000 quintals. Gillies proudly selects their SHB, EP (Strictly Hard Bean-European Preparation) coffee, reflecting the highest altitude growth.
