An organically grown, naturally pulped and washed bean, cultivated by the small local farmers of the Altos de Chiapas region of Mexico. The farmers who produce this coffee are mostly of the Tzeltal indigenous peoples where Cajpe (“coffee” in the native Tzeltal language) is the main economic activity in the community and the main link they have with international markets. The beans are intercropped with beans, bananas, pumpkin, citrus and plums which are grown for eating. The coffee cherry is fertilised with cherry coffee pulp, dry leaves and wood ashes in keeping with organic practices.
These beans are roasted in-house to produce a coffee with a medium body and acidity,with notes of orange and milk chooclate with hints of bell pepper and biscuits.
Similarly to all our coffee here at Duffin’s, it is a Direct and Fair Trade product; we buy it at well above the World Trade and Seasonally Agreed price to ensure that the produces get a guaranteed annual income, regardless of price fluctuations.
