Located in the highlands of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas, El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve is one of the world’s most diverse forest reserves. This reserve contains Mesoamerica’s largest continuous cloud forest, and it serves as a refuge to thousands of plant and animal species. El Triunfo is a rare and valuable sanctuary that requires continued protection, and CESMACH ensures this protection through various sustainable practices. All the coffee they produce is shade grown, and biological corridors are created in order to facilitate bird and animal migration.
The steadily increasing quality and emphasis on certifications has caused Mexico to turn a lot of heads in the industry. As a whole the Mexican coffee industry has taken great strides since the coffee market crashed in 2000. In particular, Mexico is now a highly sought after origin for exquisite Fair Trade and Organic Certified Coffees.
