Description / About the Region
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.
