This beautiful lot of coffee was grown by Reina Lopez. In Mexico, farm names for small scale producers such as this are very rare. This is because the average producer here owns and works on several small fields scattered around their village.
Each village has its own structure for organising coffee production. Some are organised as private entities, where land is bought, sold, and passed onto children. Others are entirely communal, where parcels of land are shared and tended as a collective. Around 90% of the land in Oaxaca is communal.
The coffee is a mix of two varieties that are very typical to the Sierra Sur, Mundo Novo and Pluma Hidalgo. Pluma Hidalgo is a variant of the typica variety and was developed in the Sierra Sur, in the town of Pluma Hidalgo just a few miles away.
The carbon footprint from this coffee's journey has been offset twice.
