Background Details

MEXICO ORGANIC CADENA TRES is sourced from family owned farms organized around Grupo de Productores de Café de Conservación 3 S.C. de R.S. de C.V, an association with more than 400 members who produce coffee on small family-owned farms located in the Sierra Madre mountain range along the edge of El Triunfo biosphere reserve within the state of Chiapas, Mexico.  El Triunfo biosphere reserve is home to more than 800 plant species and 390 bird species. Farmers process coffee with their own micro-wet mills and dry the coffee in the sun on patios before transporting the coffee in parchment to a centrally located dry mill facility where the coffee is prepared for export.
