Coffee in Mexico is classified by the altitude at which it is grown. Most of Mexico’s coffee comes from its southern regions, where the landmass curves to the east and becomes narrower.
- Chiapas - The hot, tropical climate of this region has great growing conditions and produces a fairly consistent output. Volcanoes in this region have provided fertile soil that delivers nutrients to the coffee plants, helping them flower.
Oaxaca - In the southern state of Oaxaca, from the southern slopes of the central mountains, the Oaxaca Pluma coffee is cultivated.
“HIGH GROWN” = HIGH QUALITY
Coffee produced from the regions of Chiapas and Oaxaca is called Altura, which translates to “high grown”. When it comes to coffee production, higher almost always means better. Mexican Altura coffee beans are considered to be very high quality and are among the finest grown in the Americas. Now that’s what you call higher ground!
SMALL FARM COFFEE PRODUCERS
Most of the coffee from Mexico is grown in small, privately-owned farms, and dried and picked by hand, making Mexico one of the most abundant exporters of organic coffee. Its close proximity to the US allows the majority of these high-quality coffees to be shipped directly, which gives it a lower price in the US market.
