Chiapas Turquesa, or turquoise, takes its name from the precious stone—the color of which is spread across the regions, in its incredible waters and vast sky.
This coffee comes from across the region, is grown at altitudes between 900 and 1,100 meters, and is characterized by large bean sizes and a round, balanced cup.
This coffee has been cultivated mainly by smallholders, often descendants of Indigenous tribes. These producers plant, harvest and prepare the coffee by hand, sparing no effort to produce a coffee they can feel proud of. To help ensure that producers receive a fair price for their product, the exporters support these communities with social projects and use their transportation infrastructure to bring the producers’ coffees to market. After a second quality check, the coffee is cleaned, milled and sorted to be prepared for export. This coffee has a quality control standard that allows for only 15 imperfections per 300 grams.
Specialty grade, 100% Arabica coffee.
