Mexico 'Altura Tollan'
Organic Coffee -
FAIR TRADE & ORGANIC
This delicious Mexican organic coffee comes from a plantation located in the Sierra Madres, which is found in the State of Chiapas. This area has extremely diverse weather conditions due to its high mountains areas and low valleys. It is home to eight different volcanoes right in the same area, and where there are volcano's...there is the glorious volcanic ash to grow coffee in. In general, the weather here is very tropical with high humidity.
Throughout the season, the air can become quite foggy, which is beneficial to the coffee trees because the cloud forests offer protection from the sun. This offers protection not only from the sunlight,but protects against pests and disease therefore leading to less need for pesticides and herbicides. The canopy of trees keep the lower coffee trees safe in their own little micro climate allowing them to grow organically. The Chiapas area is so diverse that it actually has 5 geographical zones, rainforest, highlands, valley, sierra and the Soconusco...we know they make spectacular gourmet coffee but that must also be a spectacular place to see.
Coffee from this region will allow you to experience a light to medium bodied coffee, with a delicate acidity and a wonderful aroma. Here at Gourmet CoffeeXpress we know that you enjoy your coffee with your nose well before you taste it with your mouth...and this one is sure to please both senses.
You'll be happy to know that by purchasing organic Mexico coffee, you are helping to empower an entire community. The Mayan farmers work together to address common needs for their families, especially their women and children. A team of seventy-six certified members train other fellow coffee growers on the organic practices. They instruct and assist planting fruit trees to help shade the coffee plants and to help supplement the families income by later selling the fruit to local markets. That extra money supports the family, the farm, the local schools, teaching leadership and management skills for women, which in turn will earn extra money as well.
What more can we say? A great tasting gourmet organic coffee, rich in culture and tradition and one that makes the planet a better place to be, one sip at a time. Organic isn't just better for you, it is better for the farmer, his family and for the whole community. Enjoy this freshly roasted coffee that will be shipped to you in a heat sealed valve bag to ensure its freshness. Enjoy it and share it!
