Far down near the southern edge of Mexico, the Chiapas region is right on the border of Guatemala. This coffee has a balanced body and features the fruity and nutty flavor notes associated with the growing region. The acidity is bright, but not overpowering, and the aroma is delicate and fresh. Chiapas coffees are admired for their delicate aroma, medium body, natural chocolate flavor, and pleasing acidity.
This coffee is sourced from family owned farms organized around the Grupo de Asesores de Producción Orgánica y Sustentables (GRAPOS), a farmers group operating in the municipalities of Unión Juárez, Cacahoatan, and Tapachula located within the state of Chiapas, Mexico. GRAPOS has invested in nurseries to support farm renovation, and diversification initiatives including a women’s knitting program and mushroom cultivation project aimed at creating other sources of income.
