This coffee comes from smallholder producers who deliver to the San Cristobal de las Casas and Yajalón buying stations in northern Chiapas, to the east and northeast of Tuxla Gutiérrez the region. The growing area, which runs between altitudes of 900 and 1,100 meters, is characterized by large bean sizes and a round, balanced cup with a smooth body — an ideal morning cup.

For decades, Chiapas has been the center of political and ethnic conflicts. The Zapatista movement prevented any large coffee farms from coming into existence, due to their demands for indigenous rights and land access. Consequently, coffee has been cultivated mainly by smallholders, often descendants of Indigenous tribes, These producers plant, harvest and prepare the coffee by hand, sparing no effort to produce coffees they can feel proud of. Generally, they each produce between 10 and 15 bags
