Mexico is a medium bodied coffee with a delicate marzipan aroma and subtle flavours of chocolate.
Produced in the cooperative FIECH, they export and mill on behalf of 15 small cooperatives from municipals across the state of Chipas, which is located in the south of Mexico, with 2800 members in 21 municipalities.
The rugged mountain terrain is the perfect condition to grow coffee, which is the main source of income for local farming communities.
The Federation Indigena Ecologica de Chiapas (FIECH) was created in 1993 by three small cooperatives in the region. Since FIECH gained certification in 1996, families have benefited from steadier and higher incomes, better practices and training, leading to increased output and quality. FIECH has renovated over 3,000 hectares by planting two million new Arabica trees. The cooperative uses profits to invest in children’s education, dormitories and medical facilities and invests in farmers education in organic agriculture.
