This coffee is a Regional Select, this program was created to highlight the individual character that coffees from particular regions have. Microclimates contribute to the unique flavour profile of the crops which grow there. Wind patterns, soil quality, sunlight, elevation, and other environmental influencers all have an impact on the terroir and flavour in the cup. Siltepec is a town 16 miles from the border with Guatemala, and a municipality with a population of around 35,000 in the state of Chiapas. Chiapas produces 60 percent of Mexico’s total coffee output, and shares a border with the highly prized Guatemalan coffee producing region, Huehuetenango. In Chiapas you find many small producers depulping the coffee by hand and drying wherever they can, to deliver dry parchment to a central repository. Chiapas is also home to cooperatives, both Fair Trade and not. Many organic producers and large estates are entirely self- contained, and efficiently producing their own electricity to run their own wet mills, dry mills and support their housing. Mexico is one of the largest producers of coffee in the world, in particular organic coffee. Coffee is one of Mexico’s most lucrative exports and close to half a million farmers and their families rely on the crop for their economic survival.
