Mexican Chiapas Finca El Chorro Coffee
A nutty, milk chocolate taste with an aromatic hint of orange peel.
From an isolated area just north of the port city of Tapachula in very Southern Mexico, Pacific air currents hit the first range of the Sierra Madres for ideal growing conditions. Finca El Chorro is so teeming with biodiversity that it has also earned Smithsonian Bird Friendly certification. This means it counts over 100 species of birds (including blue magpies, parrots, and the resplendent quetzal) and over 200 plant species. This coffee stands alone and is also quite versatile – we use it in many of our blends to bring milk-chocolate taste and silky depth.
$12.45 – $62.25
While Mexico is the largest producer of organic coffee, there are not many farms that rival El Chorro for the care of their land and people. I've visited several times and am always thrilled by their conservation efforts, as well as their focus on community and the quality of their coffee.
