Mexico Soconusco Region
10 oz. Soconusco is a region in the southwest corner of Chiapas along the border of Guatemala. With its rich volcanic soil and plentiful rainfall, the region is ideal for coffee growing. The economy is driven largely by agriculture and coffee is the main cash crop.
Harvest in Chiapas is generally December through March. Most Chiapas farmers are smallholders who hand-pick coffee cherry to ensure quality. Coffee is then brought in parchment to be dry-milled, sorted for quality and prepared for export.
