FTV & CESMACH - Chiapas, Mexico

This coffee comes from two cooperatives, Finca Triunfo Verde (FTV) and Campesinos Ecologicos de la Sierra Madre de Chiapas (CESMACH), since the mid-2010s. The quality of their coffee has remained consistently high.

Both cooperatives sell their coffee through a third party, allowing them to focus on producing excellent speciality coffee. With ideal conditions like heirloom coffee varieties (Bourbon, Typica), high altitude (1200–1750masl), and dedicated growers, this region has the potential to produce exceptional coffee. CESMACH, managed by Sixto Bonilla, has about 500 active members and a strong focus on quality improvement.

Collaborative efforts aim to enhance coffee quality through initiatives like training Q Graders and establishing a centralized cupping lab. CESMACH and FTV farms are situated in the buffer zone of El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, known for its rich biodiversity.

The coffee is shade-grown, contributing to its unique flavor profile: sweet, smooth, and medium-bodied, with hints of chocolate, dried stone fruit, vanilla nougat, and nuts. Perfect for your morning cup.

CESMACH Women Led Co-Op

In 2005, a group of six women farmers from the CESMACH co-op formed an alliance to involve more women in coffee cultivation workshops and recognize their contributions to farm management. They wanted to empower these women who were running their own farms while their husbands were listed as CESMACH members on paper.

By 2006, the group grew to 23 women who officially joined CESMACH, selling their coffee as "Café Feminino" to signify it was produced by women. This initiative supports single mothers who often provide for their families.

The CESMACH Women Producer program started in 2012, with 32 communities represented by these women. The premium earned from their coffee sales was used to build vegetable gardens and later invested in women's health programs, including cervical cancer prevention and examinations for over 500 women in partnership with Grounds For Health.

Today, the co-op has 224 women members, including widows and private landowners, and one woman producer holds a position on CESMACH's board of directors. This progress is significant in Mexico, where gender equality has been traditionally challenging. The CESMACH Women Producers not only focus on producing coffee grown by women but also adhere to CESMACH's quality standards.

We are proud to share the CESMACH Women's Producer coffee harvest.
