The story behind
While coﬀee is grown in 15 states in Mexico, 90% of it comes from four states: Veracruz, Oaxaca, Puebla, and Chiapas. This organic coﬀee comes from the Jaltenango region of Chiapas. Jaltenango is a municipality within the Socioeconomic Region La Fraylescana and has incredible biodiversity, rich with jungle life.
There are more than 500,000 coﬀee farmers in Mexico, with 95% of them being smallholders with less than three hectares, and 85% being indigenous Mexicans. Mexico is one of the world’s largest producers of certified organic coﬀees.
Chiapas borders Guatemala, and is contiguous with Huehuetenango, so these coﬀees tend to have similar cup profiles, having bright and clean acidity, with light fruit and cocoa notes.
