Tarrazu La Pastora is a coffee developed by Tarrazu coop, a well-recognized cooperative in San Marcos, Tarrazu. CoopeTarrazu has more than 53 years of experience and tradition and works with more than 3,000 coffee producers and 250 mill workers from the surrounding communities in the Tarrazu and Leon Cortes regions. The cooperative's main functions are to provide milling, marketing and export services to its members.
The soil is mostly volcanic and gives the beans a high acidity. These beans are grown at high altitudes, above 1200 – 1800 m allowing them to be designated Single Hard Bean – the highest classification in the Costa Rican system.
Recycling and education programs have been introduced in the community by the cooperative's staff and thousands of dollars are donated every year to worthy programs in the region.
