MEXICAN TURQUESA

MEXICAN TURQUESA

Mexico truly grows premier coffees but often times, obstacles come in the way with the rural growers, needs such as transportation and exposure to market need to take place.  One of these unique areas is found in Chiapas, a community in southern Mexico, where the mountains are rugged but the sky is “turquoise blue” and the colors are vivid.  In order to get to this region, one needs to pass through Tuxla the capitol of the state of Chiapas and finally, after a long mountainous drive, reach the city of San Cristobal.  Due to much political activity and a movement called the Zapitas movement, medium to large size estates were not able to be established, so the coffee is grown by smallholders who harvest the coffee by hand and then bring to market.  Our Exporter, works with these growers to provide an opportunity for this premier coffee to be available to reach market.  This gives the growers, opportunity to receive a fair price for their hard work and efforts.
