Chiapas is a region which has stuck out in our mind since we first started roasting coffee in the basement in 2011. We were lucky enough to score a bag of Mexican Chiapas coffee back then and the distinct delicious taste has been in our memory ever since. Rich chocolate, red fruit, and toasted peanuts and almonds lend to a creamy mouthfeel. It’s the closest thing to peanut butter in a cup we’ve come across.
This coffee was named Las Cotorras after the beautiful birds of the El Triunfo Biosphere which is a protected area of close to 120 thousand hectares. It represents the very last of the Central American cloud forests, where naturally occurring condensation is trapped by the forest, giving life to a large number of plant and animal species. In this area you can witness the juxtaposition of southern and northern species, which are attracted to the area’s natural richness.
We’re proud to continue to feature the very best coffees that Mexico has to offer!
