12 oz. whole bean coffee roasted to order
This is a Fair Trade and Organic certified SHG EP grade washed coffee from Campesinos Ecológicos de la Sierra Madre de Chiapas coffee cooperative (CESMACH), located in the Chiapas region of Mexico. The coffee is processed at Union El Triunfo in Independencia, a municipality of La Concordia, Chiapas. Growing altitude for this lot is between 900 and 1850 masl with 85% of the plots well above 1,200masl and varieties include Typica and Bourbon. THE PRODUCERS // CESMACH was founded in 1994 by smallholder farmers seeking more transparent access to the coffee market. At the time the local market was dominated by many intermediaries and an absence of technical support and pre-finance, leading to a challenging environment for the farmers. So, the farmers organized themselves into a co-op, which today has 663 members. The co-op is well known for its strong leadership and adept organization and operates under 3 central maxims: Economic profitability and efficiency // Organic farming is strongly promoted, resulting in the certification of more than sixty percent of the organization’s members. In total, members have 1,250 hectares under organic coffee cultivation. Premiums are used to support a community savings bank to facilitate member access to financing.
