Mexico / Chiapas
This coffee comes from the Triunfo Verde Co-op located in the buffer zone of El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve in the highlands of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas. The reserve is one of the world's most diverse forests and its continuous cloud forest is refuge for thousands of plants and animals. Biological corridors have been constructed in the area to facilitate bird and animal migration.
The women's association for Triunfo Verde Co-op has 51 members who have come together in order to collectively face some of the issues that affect women farmers in Mexico, including gender-based domestic violence, legal obstacles to obtaining land ownership, limited opportunities to diversify the family income, fewer educational opportunities, and economic dependence on men. Specifically the group has come together to launch a financial program for women called FinMujer (Financing of the Coffee Woman). This initiative seeks to distribute funds for farm renovation, home improvements, the establishment of savings funds, and more.
Repetition has consistently offered a Mexico Chiapas, as it has become a favorite in our local community.
The Mexico Chiapas makes for a tasty, well-rounded cup on batch brew. As an espresso, notes of citric acidity dance over a nutty, syrupy body.
