Mexico Chiapas Triunfo [Certified Organic and Fair Trade]
We have been enjoying coffee from Chiapas since we began this company. This is one of our most popular origins. Tasting notes include cacao nibs and dark chocolate, a little bit of caramel, and a touch of sweet lemon.
The farms in El Triunfo Verde Cooperative are located in the buffer zone of El Triunfo Biosphere. The biosphere is located in the highlands of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas. El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve is one of the world’s most diverse forest reserves. This reserve contains Mesoamerica’s largest continuous cloud forest, and it serves as a refuge to thousands of plant and animal species. El Triunfo is a rare and valuable sanctuary which requires continued protection. All the coffee they produce is shade-grown, and biological corridors are created in order to facilitate bird and animal migration.
