The Rich and Flavorful World of Mexican Coffee from Chiapas
Nestled in the heart of Mexico’s southernmost state, Chiapas coffee farms boast a combination of lush rainforests, high altitudes, and the perfect balance of rainfall and sunshine. This unique landscape and the region’s dedication to organic farming and sustainable practices contribute to the distinctive flavour profile of Chiapas coffee beans. As a specialty coffee roasting company, we are proud to showcase the exceptional taste and quality of Mexican Chiapas Organic coffee in our selection.
Discovering the Unique Attributes of Chiapas Coffee
The Chiapas Highlands, situated in the Sierra Madre de Chiapas mountains, provide an ideal environment for coffee cultivation. With elevations reaching 1,200 to 1,750 meters above sea level, the surrounding forest canopy shades the coffee grown by local coffee farms. These growing conditions contribute to the complex characteristics of Chiapas coffee, which delicately balances chocolate tones with bright acidity.
The Soconusco region, which borders Guatemala’s famed Huehuetenango department, is renowned for its coffee production. Over one-third of Soconusco’s arable land is dedicated to coffee farming, a testament to the region’s long history of producing high-quality beans for export since the late 1800s. Most coffee farmers in Chiapas are smallholders, relying on coffee as a primary cash crop.
The commitment to organic farming practices in Chiapas is beneficial for the environment and results in a delightful flavour profile that includes marzipan, orange, red apple, and granola. This light coffee with satisfying acidity is a beautiful example of Chiapas’ agricultural excellence.
Chiapas Coffee: A Sustainable Choice
Chiapas coffee farmers prioritize conserving and revitalizing the land’s resources. Chiapas is home to the Sierra Madre Mountains, which provide the perfect combination of rainfall and sunshine for Specialty Grade strictly high grown (SHG) coffee beans. In addition, organic, Rainforest Alliance, shade-grown, and bird-friendly practices are implemented in the region, which has earned recognition in the form of the National Ecological Prize for environmental stewardship in 1996.
The transition back to organic farming techniques in Chiapas aims to achieve self-sufficiency and create sustainability for local communities. Developing a network of Fair Trade farmers’ cooperatives is helping to improve the quality of life for the people in the region.

Exploring the Origins of Chiapas Coffee
The coffee-producing region of Chiapas shares a border with Guatemala, and, unsurprisingly, the beans of both areas exhibit similar characteristics. Chiapas coffee is often considered the “little brother” of Guatemala’s Huehuetenango region, with its bright, sweet, and fruity flavours complemented by a hint of clove spice. We trace the introduction of coffee to Chiapas back to neighbouring Guatemala, which may explain the similarities in taste profiles and qualities.
The Rich Biodiversity of Chiapas Coffee Farms
One of the distinguishing features of Chiapas coffee farms is their commitment to preserving the area’s rich biodiversity. Coffee farms in the region are often interwoven with tropical forests, creating a harmonious balance between agriculture and nature. As a result, the canopies of these farms are teeming with life, while the fields are filled with coffee trees, fruit trees, and vegetables, all flourishing in nutrient-rich soil.
The wet processing method, which involves removing the skin and pulp of the cherry after harvesting, is commonly used in Chiapas. This technique results in a well-balanced coffee with good delivery and a smooth body. Most coffee producers in the region hand-pulp their beans, ferment them in small tanks, and rake and dry them on small patios on their properties. The parchment is then sorted and graded at the dry mill, ensuring the highest quality Chiapas coffee beans make their way to your cup.
