This coop - Coopro Naranjo, counts 2,000 members. They have o ered a micro-lot program since 2006 that producers can join. They receive agronomy and processes training and support. They then need to fulfill the requirements of the Coop for their coffee to be considered as Micro-Lot. Producers get an advance of Colones 110,000 in cash for their Micro-lots. These coffees are delivered directly to the coop, the other coffees (blends, commercial quality) are delivered in one of the 47 receiving centers. Most of it is delivered in cherries. At the Coop, the Micro-lots are dried on African beds. The lots are not moved during the first night and then moved every 20 min. It takes 10 to 12 days to dry the honeys and 18 for the naturals. The region is structured by ‘Lomas’ which are hills. The Loma program gathers specialty quality beans to create regional tailor-made lots for customers. Los Robles being one of the numerous hills. Because of the small size of the harvest this year, the coop had to get coffees from a few Lomas (hills) to produce the lots, allowing them to continue committing to the same volume despite the harvest difficulties the producers have been coping with this year.
