Background: MEXICO ORGANIC CHIAPAS SERRANO ALTURA EP is sourced from family-owned farms organized around Productores Serranos de Café de Motozintla, which operates in 22 communities spread throughout the southern end of the Sierra Madre mountain range in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. Most of the farms have less than 10 acres of coffee cultivation with elevations reaching 1750 meters above sea level near the El Triunfo biosphere reserve.

Each producer processes coffee with their own micro-wet mills and dry the coffee in the sun on patios before transporting the coffee in parchment to a centrally located dry mill facility where the coffee is prepared for export.
