Cooperativa Agricola Integral Peña Roja is a smaller co-op that works with a larger union of cooperatives, Fedecocagua, to help market and sell their coffee abroad. In return, they get extra investment and support as well as access to services such as agronomists that work directly with the union. In this manner, they can maintain the traceability and character of their coffee and share the expertise that larger groups have access to as well as increase their network for best practices and issues fighting diseases. The co-op also provides a free nursery for children under eight in their community. Coffee on the 81 smallholders’ farms is picked by hand, washed, and dried on patios under the sun.
