ORGANIC Grown at high altitudes in the rich volcanic soils of the Chiapas region, this delicious Organic Mexican coffee flourishes under the nourishment and protection of nature. The weather is tropical and very humid, lending the perfect conditions to encourage slow maturity so that each bean becomes enriched with flavor. The cloud cover protects the coffee trees from excessive sunlight, and the canopy of fruit trees shields the coffee beans to keep the micro climate cool. Each plantation is tended to by Mayan farmers who cultivate the coffee cherries without the use of pesticides or other chemicals; the farmers use the best organic practices and environmentally farming procedures. Since the coffee is a Fair-Trade product, the farmers and their communities also benefit. Winy notes, high acidity, and a wonderful aroma. This slightly sweet brew is known to produce hints of nuts or citrus flavors.
