The idea was born in Santa Amellia Xalapa as a way of supporting a growing community of farmers. They excelled at growing: Corn, Tomato, Apples, Peaches and Avocado – they then added coffee. Due to the richness of the soils and the high altitude at where they are found, coffee has been a great success. The idea originated when a Spanish organization visited them and encouraged an organized community to support each other and find better markets for their quality products. They became a formal association in February of 2017 with the help of Third Wave Coffee Source and will hopefully have their first wet mill next year.
Decaffeinated using the Co2 process.
