Coopedota was founded by 96 farmers in 1960. Over the past 58 years, the co-op has grown tremendously. It is now considered one of the most organized farmer cooperatives in Costa Rica, and has gained global recognition for its success. The enterprise is so successful, that farmer members see almost 100% in profit return, minus the fractional cost of milling and export operations. All members must own farms above 1500 masl, and new members must only cultivate arabica varieties. Most grow caturra and catuaí. Dota, as a region at large, lies in the steep slopes of the Sierra de Talamanca, just west of the Continental Divide. Surrounded by peaks, it sits directly adjacent to the eastern edge of its more famous counterpart, the Tarrazú Valley. The slopes are lush and illuminated, populated with primary and secondary montane rain forests.
