Altura Superior Chiapas Strictly High Grown (SHG) is a regional blend from one of Mexico's largest and oldest coffee-producing areas, with some farms dating back a century.


Chiapas benefits from the humidity of the Pacific to the west and the Gulf of Mexico to the east. Com- bined with the slopes of the Sierra Madres, which divide the state and reach up to 1,600 meters near the border with Guatemala, countless microclimates are created, cultivating a distinctive cup quality.


Coffees in Chiapas are generally produced by small- holders, usually in association with cooperatives. Most producers hand-pulp their coffees, ferment the beans in small tanks and rake and dry them on small patios on their properties.


Expect a full bodied coffee, spicy acidity, round cup with dried-fruit sweetness. Dark chocolate and aromas nut butter, create an exceptional coffee.
