Our Mexican beans come directly to us from Serranos de Motozintla Cooperative in the southern Sierra Madre region of Chiapas. In spite of years of government and private attempts to grab land and dislocate indigenous communities in Chiapas, the farmers of Serranos de Motozintla have managed to hold on and prosper, evolving a highly sought-after specialty crop.

In Chiapas, we have worked for years with local communities on education, health and providing opportunity for victims of the Death Train. At the request of PROISCH we have been organizing and funding advanced organic technical trainings that create improved soil and coffee quality. As a result of this continuing program, high end coffee buyers have been paying premiums for this fantastic coffee (but you can get it for a lot less from us!)
