ADDITIONAL INFO
50% Nayarit Natural Anaerobic
The Mexican state of Nayarit is rich in agriculture. The highlands of Tepic, Nayarit’s capital city, lies at the foothills of an extinct volcano and experiences a humid, subtropical climate; most of its rainfall occurs between April to November. The city is well-connected with highway, air, and rail transport infrastructure that catalyzed the region’s growth as a commercial, industrial, and agricultural center.

Cofradía de Chocolón is a two-hour, dirt-road drive from Tepic. Although it’s a small town in the middle of nowhere, the area boasts spectacular views of the ocean and forests full of old coffee plantations. Bourbon and Caturra trees benefit from the distinctive environment, and when cherries are naturally and anaerobically processed, the resulting coffee teems with exotic tropical and fruit flavors.

A standout among Mexican coffees, this natural-anaerobic-processed coffee from northern Mexico presents a unique and complex cup profile for for those looking for something new.

50% Chiapas Bellavista Washed
When leaf rust devastated Mexico’s coffee farms in 2012 the industry struggled to rebuild coffee production and the livelihoods of smallholder farmers that were hit the hardest. Importers and farmers worked together to design programs to overhaul coffee-growing conditions. The goal: develop sustainable production practices to position coffee as the main economic driver in coffee regions.

New programs gave smallholders in Bellavista access to healthy seedlings, high-quality fertilizer, financing, and purchase guarantees. In addition, farmers benefited from technical and agricultural assistance. Today, Bellavista’s growers are part of a network of thousands of producers who have collectively renewed over 5,000 hectares of farmland in Mexico.

The municipality of Frontera in Mexico’s Chiapas region, where Bellavista sits at 1,600-1,850masl, borders Guatemala’s Huehuetenango department. The area shares the same microclimate that produces exceptional cup profiles that include buttery notes of vanilla, caramel, and hazelnut. Farmers here employ traditional processing methods like hand de-pulping, wooden-tank fermentation, and patio sun-drying.
