Our Mexico Chiapas is grown in the southwest corner of Chiapas in the Soconusco region, along the border of Guatemala. Coffee is the main cash crop of this region due to ideal growing conditions.
With its rich volcanic soil and plentiful rainfall, the region is ideal for coffee growing. The economy is driven largely by agriculture and coffee is the main cash crop.
Harvest in Chiapas is generally December through March. Most Chiapas farmers are smallholders who hand-pick coffee cherries to ensure quality. Coffee is then brought in parchment to be dry-milled, sorted for quality, and prepared for export.
Expect a medium-bodied coffee with a heavy aroma and a nice acidity. Fine and round cup.
