Our Costa Rica Jaguar Tarrazú Honey is one of our coffees with a purpose. The coffee is the same as San Diego Honey, but we are asking roasters to pay $.10/lb more - and Genuine Origin will match it - for the coffee to finance FUNDAZOO's program to protect Costa Rica's diminishing jaguar population.
FUNDAZOO is an organization that is actively involved in conservation through research, habitat management and education. Conservation activities include species exhibitions, natural history, guided tours and workshops for students. Reforestation and rehabilitation of the zoo, as well as the Conservation Center in Santa Ana. Also, FUNDAZOO actively works with Conservation Planning Specialist Group (CPSG) of the Species Survival Commission (SSC) of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

Few coffee-producing countries go the extra mile to protect their agricultural workforce like Costa Rica does. After a violent civil war in 1948, the newly-formed Constitutional Assembly abolished the military. This move reallocated Costa Rica’s budget to medical care and education, propelling the country into a period of peace and growth to this day. Read more in our Costa Rica Origin Report.
