The Cooperativa Agrícola Cafetalera San Antonio, or COAGRICSAL, was founded in 1995 with one vision – improve the quality of lives in their community and preserve the environment. The harmonious relationship between human beings and the environment is something COAGRICSAL holds sacred. By centralizing their harvesting methods around environmentally sustainable practices, the cooperative acted to revive their effected ecosystems. Today, the cooperative includes 800 members, all of which have benefitted from their Fair Trade certification. Fair Trade premiums have allowed them to invest in community projects that help strengthen livelihoods, health, sanitation and education. From start to finish, farmers pay very close attention to the way their coffee is produced and hold high standards of quality. They sell primarily to specialty coffee markets reaching a variety of consumers on a global scale.
