This coffee has been a crowd favorite year after year. It is balanced, sweet, uncomplicated and just plain delicious.
Especially exciting because Brio is again partnering with "Food 4 Farmers", a Vermont-based nonprofit organization, that has worked with the producers of CESMACH since 2013 on food security projects. As in previous years, for every pound of the Chiapas they roast and sell, Brio contributes $1 toward apiary projects at CESMACH. Together with Food 4 Farmers, the Coop identified commercial beekeeping as a key opportunity to build better livelihoods and nutrition.
The farms part of the Cooperative are located in the buffer zone of El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, which is in the highlands of the Sierra Madre. It is one of the most diverse forest reserve areas in the world and contains Meso-America's largest cloud forest, as well as a protected natural environment for thousands of plant and animal species. All of the coffee produced here is shade-grown.
Look for notes of brown sugar, citrus and toasted almond.
