This is our second year purchasing this fine offering from Chiapas, Mexico. Consistent with last year, this coffee possesses a heavy cream mouth feel with a mild and crisp acidity. There are both the floral and fruity elements of orange blossom and its clean finish will surely leave you wanting another cup.
This coffee is produced in the highlands of Chiapas along the borders of El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve. The reserve is the largest of its kind in all of Mesoamerica and serves as a refuge for thousands of species of plants and animals. All the coffee is shade grown and produced with long term sustainability in mind.
The people responsible for this coffee are the Campesinos Ecologicos de la Sierra Madre de Chiapas(CESMACH). The CESMACH coop is dedicated to the preservation of the environment around them and the lives and health of its members. They take great care in assessing the quality of every lot of coffee delivered to them in a well used quality control lab. The cup quality of this delivery reflects the attention paid and their commitment to top quality production. The coffee is fully washed and sundried on concrete patios.
