Mexico Oaxaca Fair Trade Organic
This Fair Trade Organic Mexico is a unique Oaxacan coffee bean – sweet with notes of orange-citrus, very clean, chocolatey. This organic coffee variety hails from Oaxaca, the southwestern state in Mexico to the west of mountainous ranges of Chiapas.
In 1989, after the Mexican government abandoned the coffee industry sector because of budget cuts, the Oaxacan State Coffee Producers Network (CEPCO) was established. CEPCO was able to unite small producers throughout the Oaxacan region and uses the revenue from their Fair Trade sales to provide credit and savings support for its members, promote women’s organization and technical assistance to families, provide life insurance for members and to fund coffee production infrastructure improvements. Currently 90% of CEPCO’s farmers own less than 2 hectares.
Tasting notes: sweet orange and citrus notes, hint of brown sugar and cocca.
