These organic, fair-trade beans are shade-grown by the CESMACH co-op in the highlands of the Sierra Madre mountains – more specifically in the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, one of the world’s most diverse forest reserves. This reserve contains Meso-America’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 that requires continued protection. Biological corridors are created in order to facilitate bird and animal migration.
CESMACH has a female-led coffee shop in Tuxtla Gutierrez, the capital of the state of Chiapas. The coffee shop is part of a strategic effort at CESMACH to diversify the organization’s income streams. CESMACH has started roasting and distributing quality organic coffee throughout Mexico to restaurants, cafes, and hotels. The café in Tuxtla Gutierrez serves to promote their farmers’ high quality product locally and encourage fellow Chiapanecos to drink coffee produced sustainably by smallholder farmers.
