Coopetarrazu is a cooperative that operates in various communities throughout the Tarrazú region of Costa Rica. In addition to offering good prices, resources, and market access to growers, the co-op also has experimental farms on which different varieties, milling processes, drying techniques, and inputs and pesticides can be tested. This lot comes from a collection of farmers who have planted the F1 of a cultivar called Centroamericano that Coopetarrazu has tested on its own farms. F1 is a term for an early generation in the breed, and this particular cultivar is a hybrid of Sarchimor—Villa Sarchi bred with Catimor—and the heirloom variety Rume Sudan.
