"We named this coffee after the first president of the CoopeAgri cooperative – Don Claudio. In the 50s and 60s the road infrastructure in Southern Costa Rica, where CoopeAgri is situated, was run by private companies making it impossible to affordably get coffee out of the region. This cooperative was set up to unify resources to ensure farmers could gain access to road infrastructure. Thanks to Don Claudio, this has given us the opportunity to taste and source the delicious coffees the area has to offer."
