The CooAgroNevada Co-op unites coffee growing families from 19 different villages with combined goals to improve social welfare, economic growth, quality of coffee and ecotourism while preserving the region's picturesque peaks, rivers and valleys. Since their founding in 2007, the Co-op has focused on implementing a number of sustainable systems including mechanical drying silos, solar drying beds and water treatment plants for cleaning and recycling organic waste water from the washing and fermenting process.
