Mexican Chiapas

$12.50

We took a gamble and it paid off. We pulled this coffee darker than the rest of our beans which created a bold, smooth flavor that wakes you up in the morning and keeps you going throughout the day. This coffee is perfect for cool fall days and wraps you up like a blanket on a cold morning. Hit it with some heavy cream and sprinkle a little pumpkin spice on top and start your morning off right!

Description

About this Coffee:
GRAPOS or Grupo de Asesores de Producción Orgánica y Sustentable S.C. is a group of coffee producers in the state of Chiapas in southern Mexico in an area that borders la Biósfera del Triunfo or Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, from which Café Imports has also purchased coffee.
GRAPOS was formed in 2007 and consisted of 90 member farmers. In 2016, the group now includes 3,253 member farmers and covers an area including the microregions of Soconusco, Siltepec, Porvenir, and Tapachula within Chiapas. As the co-operative has grown, so has the percentage of women producers, many of whom own or have inherited coffee farms. This lot selects out a portion of the women’s contributions, and a premium is paid back to the women who contribute to the lot. Most of the women—as with all of the members of GRAPOS, farm on an average of 3–7 hectares of land. The co-op encourages producers to diversify their sources of income by growing other agricultural products—primarily banana, squash, beans, cacao, and corn—and the women of the organization have also focused on textile production for additional earning power. This Women Producers lot hopefully will allow the women of GRAPOS to increase their production and invest in projects within their communities and for the families
