The coffee is organically cultivated in the area of Chiapas, the southernmost state of Mexico, bordering Guatemala to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the south. The craggy mountain landscape within the subtropical rainforest of Chiapas is home to the famous ancient Mayan ruins of Palenque, Yaxchilán, Bonampak and to one of the world’s largest concentrations of indigenous people. The majority of the population are of Mayan heritage, living deeply rooted with the Indian culture and in peaceful harmony with the environment. The coffee properties of the 12 smallholder farmers producing this coffee are closely located to the wildlife park “El Triunfo”, one of the most beautiful nature resorts and habitat to one of the richest biodiversity in Mexico. Thanks to the humid, tropical climate, the vegetation is called “bosque de niebla” - “fog-forest” – which is of great importance to the microclimate: the clouds coming from the Pacific moving inland rain down at the mountain chain and bring a great amount of water into the country. This ensures the richness of the soil and guarantees the greatest growing conditions for this fine high-quality organic coffee without the application of chemical fertilizer. During crop season the selection of only the ripest coffee cherries is done carefully by hand. Afterwards the red cherries are pulped, fermented, washed and finally dried in the midday sun. When shipment is about to approach, the dry process begins: the pergamino has to be hulled, polished and finally classified. Thanks to careful selection, only the highest quality possible is provided and ready to be packed in bags to be exported to the coffee-lovers worldwide.
