Mexican Chiapas coffee…one of the most drinkable and enjoyable beverages out there! We roast these beans to highlight and showcase the region, creating a coffee that is brimming with cocoa, toffee and balance of citric acidity and smoothness. On top of all that, this coffee is particularly cool because the cooperative of farms/farmers that it comes from, called Triunfo Verde Co-op, includes a large percentage of women producers who own and operate coffee farms in the region!
The farms contributing to Triunfo Verde Co-op are located in the buffer zone of El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve. The biosphere is located in the highlands of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas. El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve is one of the world’s most diverse forest reserves. This reserve contains Mesoamerica’s largest continuous cloud forest, and it serves as a refuge to thousands of plant and animal species. El Triunfo is a rare and valuable sanctuary which requires continued protection. All the coffee they produce is shade-grown, and biological corridors are created in order to facilitate bird and animal migration.
Triunfo Verde Co-op comprises 346 members, and we are so stoked to have the opportunity to purchase coffee from these amazing farmers!
So, get you some bags while we have them, and enjoy a glorious cup that not only tastes amazing, but is helping to accomplish great things among our neighbors to the South! Now, get on out there and share your light!
