ABOUT THIS AMAZING COFFEE...
Chiapas is the largest coffee-producing state in Mexico. The port city, located on the southeastern coast along the Gulf of Mexico, which was nicknamed the "capital of coffee," was the gateway for coffee to disseminate throughout the country after the first plants arrived in Mexico in the 18th century.
With an elevations of 4800-5300 feet above sea level and a warm, semi-humid climate with average rainfall of 84 inches of rain annually, Chiapas is well-suited for Arabica coffee production.
Our coffee producer families are small lot holders, with less than 24 acres of land. This coffee is shade grown under forest canopies, conserving biodiversity and reduces the need for conventional fertilizers and pesticides, making organic methods far more possible.
Mountain Water Process Decaf Green Coffee
As a popular natural method for decaffeination, the Mountain Water Process uses pure water as the only extraction solution, separating the caffeine compounds from the unroasted green coffee. This process preserves certifications.
About Green Coffee From Mexico
In 2015, the Mexican government initiated a national program to renew coffee plantations with new leaf-rust-resistant varietals. Half a million coffee growers in Mexico depend on coffee for their livelihoods. To maximize sustainable coffee production, plants are intercropped with citrus, corn, banana, and other produce for home consumption.
