Coffee production in the country is mainly located in the south central to southern regions of the country. The history of this industry has been volatile. However, producers have worked hard to overcome many difficulties and there is now a renewed interest in Mexican Coffee, especially the high-quality beans coming from Oaxaca. When people list famous coffee origins, Mexico isn’t usually on the list, but it is an overlooked gem, with a lot to offer.
Located within the Oaxaca coffee growing region, is the Zona Pluma. The Sierra Madre del sur coastal mountain range is a lush forest area with crops of coffee, bananas, corn, beans and fruit trees. Coffee farms in this region are often small farms on only a few acres, that work in cooperatives. Oaxacan coffees are both distinctive and in high demand, with their sweet caramel overtones, and notes of floral and sweet fruits.
PRODUCER: 12 Coffee Producers
These 12 farms are near the town of Santa Cruz Ozolotepec, Oaxaca. Each of the farms are only a few acres in size, and are mainly indigenous producers. Each producer harvests and is responsible for the full processing of the beans, including drying. They then deliver their crop to the family-owned export company in Oaxaca, called Galguera Gomez. This export company specializes in preparing traceable lots for buyers, as well as paying producers fairer and higher incomes depending on the quality of their coffee.
