Chiapas is the southernmost state in Mexico with a coastline along the Pacific Ocean to the South. The state borders the Guatemalan coffee-growing region of Huehuetenango.
This coffee isa regional lot, sourced from various producers in Chiapas.
From 1970 to 1989, coffee farmers in Mexico benefited from the implication of INMECAFE, the Mexican Coffee Insitute. During those years, it was responsible for the growth of the country’s coffee sector. As the result, the three main states, Chiapas, Veracruz and Oaxaca, contributed 73% of the total amount of agriculture land for coffee production. Sadly, it was desolved by the government, and left farmers without protection from the highly voilatable international coffee price and had devastating effects especially for small-scale producers.
The resulting cup reminds us of chocolate trufle and orange.
