In Costa Rica, coffee has expanded development in this area of the country thanks to the quality of its soils and climatic conditions, which is why it has become a country that produces some of the best coffees in the world.
On the slopes of one of our volcanoes, the Poas volcano, part of the Central Volcanic Mountain Range, coffee beans are grown from which our exquisite coffee is obtained.
The altitude of the land, soil fertility, the excellent production process, and the experience accumulated in more than six decades of existence, means that we can grow the highest quality coffees aimed at a discerning market.
CoopeVictoria RL has modern equipment and facilities to process the grain & obtain coffee with characteristic flavours. The company has two coffee brands, which enjoy prestige in the national and international market, these are: CoopeVictoria and Monte Camejo .
Coffee is prepared with grains selected from the manual harvest, cultivated in the coffee plantations of the mountains of the Central Volcanic Mountain Range of Costa Rica. The best quality tall organic arabica coffee of the type “Strictly Hard Bean” (Export Reserve) is grown. Beans are characterized by its physical hardness and closed fissure.
CoopeVictoria has strict quality controls, from the choice of the land, the planting, the nurturing of the plants with organic fertilizers, their selection, until the processing and roasting of the beans. Professional tasters test the flavour of the coffee before sale.
All this ensures that the coffee maintains its qualities of acidity, body, and a unique aroma, characteristic of the renowned Costa Rican coffee.
In each cup of Coopevictoria and Monte Camejo coffee you will enjoy the exquisite caramel flavour and an extraordinary aroma that make it a coffee of world preference. These coffees can be purchased on Amazon.
Sustainable production methods and organic fertilizer are utilized.
