Mexico’s diverse geography, from the soaring altitudes of the country’s four mountain ranges to the beautiful coastal regions along the Pacific, supports diverse farming practices and a broad variety of crops. The growing regions of Oaxaca shares much of the same character (altitude, harvest period) as Guatemala’s fertile Huehuetenango region, which lies directly to the east. Our Mexico boasts a medium to heavy body with dark chocolate and malt tasting notes. Farmers in the region have begun a transition back to organic farming techniques as a way to achieve self-sufficiency and to create sustainability for their communities. The continued development of a network of Fair Trade farmers’ cooperatives is helping local people slowly improve their quality of life.
