Mexican Woman Power Los Altos Chiapas 12 oz.

Regular price $14.99


Mexico NKG Bloom Los Altos represents the collaborative effort of 102 indigenous women hailing from five municipalities in the Los Altos de Chiapas region of Mexico. These women have proudly passed down their traditional knowledge and cultural practices through the generations, while also playing a pivotal role in the preservation of Mexico's coffee production.

In 2014, the rust pandemic and aging trees on coffee plantations in Mexico led to a decline in production, triggering mass migration towards urban employment opportunities. Gender inequalities, particularly prevalent in rural areas, compounded the issue by limiting women's access to resources, education, employment, and decision-making power. As a result, many women producers found themselves constrained by their circumstances. The departure of men to urban areas shifted traditional social dynamics, allowing women to assume more prominent roles in economic activities. Embracing this opportunity, indigenous women in these communities transitioned into the roles of farmers and entrepreneurs with vigor.

Among the 102 producers contributing to Mexico NKG Bloom Los Altos, 12 are under 29 years old, and 57 are aged between 30-50, showcasing a blend of both the present and future of coffee production in the region. Each producer tends to an average of 1.2 hectares, meticulously hand-pulping cherry, fermenting in small tanks, washing, and sun-drying the coffee beans.

Cupping notes: Plum, brown sugar, almond; citric acidity, juicy body.

Roasted dark brings up notes of semi sweet chocolate, with a much heavier body, still quite balanced and smooth.
