It is situated in the hills of the “Reserva el Triunfo” nature reserve at 1,200 metres.

The commitment of the cooperative is made possible through fair coffee prices. However, with HAND IN HAND, Rapunzel's proprietary and externally certified fair-trade program, Rapunzel guarantees more than only fair compensation. HAND IN HAND also stands for personal contact at eye level, long-term cooperation and the support of social projects as well as excellent organic quality. This also applies to the procurement of Arabica coffee from Café Capitán strong-tasting coffee with subtle notes of cocoa and roasted nuts.

The beauty of this place is impressive, the mountains are almost 2,000 metres high and, depending on the altitude, covered with a great variety of trees as well as an overall high level of biodiversity.

The farmers' families are driven by the vision of becoming one of the leading cooperatives for sustainable coffee and improving the small coffee farmers’ incomes through high-quality coffee, thereby improving their standard of living and the educational opportunities for their children. For the farmers, it is a matter of course that coffee is grown harmony with nature.

The high-quality Arabica coffee grows in mixed cultivation at altitudes of up to 1,850 metres. The cooperative has succeeded in preserving the reserve and protecting endangered species.
