About the Coffee
The Chiapas Highlands are rich in rainfall and nutritious soil, and the coffee farms at 1200-1750masl are naturally shaded by a lush forest canopy that blankets the Sierra Madre de Chiapas mountains. The coffee-cultivating Soconusco region borders Guatemala’s Huehuetenango department, sharing the area’s complex characteristics that delicately balance chocolate tones with bright acidity. Over one-third of Soconusco’s arable land is dedicated to coffee, and the region holds a long history of producing substantial volumes for export since the late 1800s.
Everything that went into growing this Mexico Chiapas Organic is natural, with priority placed on conserving and revitalizing the land’s resources. Most of the farmers in Chiapas are smallholders, and their economy is driven by coffee as a cash crop. With a delightful flavor profile that includes marzipan, orange, red apple, and granola, this light coffee with satisfying acidity is a beautiful example of Chiapas’ agricultural excellence.
