Mexico produces a diverse variety of premium coffees, ranging from lighter-bodied, delicate qualities to sweeter coffees with caramel or chocolate notes. Many different micro-climates create these unique flavors with varied rainfall patterns and rich soils across the country. This coffee is produced at Finca Montegrande, which is located in the coffee region Jaltenango, Chiapas, at the foothill of the Sierra Madre, the southernmost state of Mexico, bordering Guatemala to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the south. Finca Montegrande was founded in 1917 and is meanwhile operated by the third generation of its owners. Self-sustainability and taking care of the environment is their main priority. Thus, the farm generates electrical energy by using a hydro-electrical plant for the milling process. Moreover, the wet mill uses only 5% of the water volume usually used by a traditional wet mill. The emerging coffee pulp is composted and used as a natural fertilizer. 200 permanent, very motivated workers do their best to make Finca Montegrande one of the most productive coffee farms in Mexico.
