Mexico | MOCABE

$ 17.00 Regular price

Our newest coffee from Mexico hails from the Chiapas state and is one of our favorites!

This MOCABE SHG EP Organic (strictly high grown, European preparation) was harvested between December and March. Each producer washed his or her own coffee, dried it in the sun on patios and then delivered it to the co-op.

In 1999, a group of farmers in the municipality of Motozintla de Mendoza, in Chiapas, Mexico, began working together, and in 2000 they officially formed the Movimiento Campesiono de Delisario SPR de R.L. cooperative — or more simply, MOCABE.

MOCABE was founded as a Social Solidarity Society, a legal entity formed specifically to improve the social and environmental situation of the farmers who join the cooperative. This is done first by giving farmers access to small loans that help pay field workers. Secondarily by providing farmers education opportunities to improve the quality of their coffee and thereby receive a higher price at harvest time. Finally, MOCABE is working to reduce the pollution levels in the area to improve the health of the farmers as well as the coffee they are producing. We are grateful to partner in the vision of MOCABE leaving the world a better place than they found it!
