This organically grown coffee comes from a community of farmers from Jaltenango, Chiapas.

In 2011 these farmers joined together to financially survive the coffee rust disaster. Ever since then, they have been investing together in the renawal of their farms and benefiting
from each other experiences.

The coffee grows between 1200 and 1500 meter above sea level, so it is an SHG (Strictly High Grown coffee). The Community sells its coffee under the brand “Finca el Flamingo”.
This name is based on the great love for the fishing village Celestún, Yucatán.

The place is an insider tip as a retreat. The large nature reserve provides a home to flamingos and other waterfowl.

Harvesting is done by hand between the month of January and April. The first shipments can leave the port of Veracruz in March. The wet processig takes places close to the farms
by a manual mill; the same applies to the drying. After drying, the parchment is transported in bags to Comitán to the dry mill. Packed in the beautiful colorful jute & GrainPro bags,
then the coffee is brought to Veracruz for shipment.

Coffees from Mexico

Although the best known Mexican coffee comes from the three regions: Chiapas, Veracruz and Oaxaca, there are five states on which 94% of the coffee production is spread out over 700 thousand hectares; this includes the states of Puebla and Guerrero. Over 49 different climatic regions provide a great variety of growing conditions for coffee plants. From humid to dry and from cold to warm, the variation in landscapes, climates and soils differentiate aromas and flavors in the cup. Mexican coffee grows under shade trees that cover around 50% of the plants. Is hand-picked and mainly sun dried.
