Taste: Like many roasters and coffee drinkers, we are guilty of under-estimating the progress Mexico has made in coffee quality.  Thankfully, our son home-roasted some and turned us on to this excellent bean.  Bright and full-flavored, this favorite for blending stands well on its own – very well indeed.  This FTO bean is a great option for those who love Mexican coffee and also value sustainable farming practices.

Roast: Best at Medium/Dark (Full City Roast), but handles all roasts very well.

About: CABONOCH is a fair-trade certified cooperative that stands for Cafeticultores de los Bosques del Norte de Chiapas. Located in the Altos de Chiapas region of Mexico, this cooperative represents smallholder producers in the surrounding areas that are harvesting ripe cherries, processing them washed on their own organic-certified farms, and delivering their coffee in parchment form to the warehouse for purchase and approval.

The farms contributing to Triunfo Verde Co-op are located in the buffer zone of El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve. The biosphere is located in the highlands of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas. El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve is one of the world’s most diverse forest reserves. This reserve contains Mesoamerica’s largest continuous cloud forest, and it serves as a refuge to thousands of plant and animal species. El Triunfo is a rare and valuable sanctuary which requires continued protection. All the coffee they produce is shade-grown, and biological corridors are created in order to facilitate bird and animal migration.

Triunfo Verde Co-op comprises 346 members and is managed by Hugo Lares, with quality control supervision by Calixto Guillén. Calixto is a highly motivated leader and is committed to quality: H

The country of Mexico has never been a player in the high-end specialty-coffee world until recently. The perception of many in the industry is that Mexican coffee is mediocre, to say the least. This is not entirely true, by any means. There is huge potential in Mexican coffee, and things will only get better. We’ve been sourcing coffee from a couple of different cooperatives in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas: Triunfo Verde and Campesinos Ecologicos de la Sierra Madre de Chiapas (CESMACH). The cup quality on these has been solid year after year. Both of these organizations commercialize their coffee through a third party, allowing them to do what they do best: produce good, strong coffee.

There is no reason why this area can’t produce great coffee! They have all the conditions such as heirloom coffee varieties (Bourbon, Typica), great altitude (1200–1750 masl), and passionate coffee growers who want to produce high-quality microlots. The location is extremely close to the Guatemala border and Huehuetenango. Cafe Imports, along with these cooperatives, invested in a quality-control program. An assessment was made in different areas impacting cup quality, such as: varieties, fertilization, picking, processing, and lot selection. They were already doing a great job, but there were some areas that could use some tweaking. The cooperatives were extremely excited to be part of this program. The plan is to have a certified Q Grader from each cooperative, and have a centralized cupping lab to aid in lot selection in order to increase the overall quality of the coffee they are producing and give feedback to the producers on their quality.
