La Pastora stands as one of CoopeTarrazu's timeless blends, hailing from the mountainous Tarrazu canton in the San Jose province. The contributing farmers tend to their coffee plantations at elevations ranging from 1,500 to 1,800 meters above sea level, fostering the development of denser beans due to the combination of high altitude and low temperatures. In 1960, 228 smallholder farmers in the Los Santos de Tarrazu region joined forces to overcome challenges in coffee production and to expand their market reach. Today, CoopeTarrazu has 4,000 members which makes it the largest cooperative in Tarrazu, Costa Rica.

In 2006, the cooperative introduced the Coffee Culture Quality of Life Sustainability Plan. This initiative offers members complimentary soil analyses, revealing the intricate relationship between their farming practices and the surrounding ecosystems. Armed with personalized insights, coffee growers gain the knowledge to tailor their cultivation methods to the specific needs of their soil, fostering sustainable and informed agricultural practices.
