This coffee is from the farm Finca Muxbal located in southern Chiapas, Mexico, right on the border with Guatemala. The farm is located close to both the Tacana and Tajumulco volcanoes which provide plenty of mineral content for the soil. The name Muxbal means ‘place surrounded by clouds’ in the local Mame language and the farm sits on a raised plateau that affords the benefit of a relatively flat area to grow coffee.

The social enterprise Raw Material is working with this coffees producer Jorge, and his mother Maeggi, to pilot a smallholder program with some of the permanent employees at Muxbal.

They're building a program to buy their parchment through Finca Muxbal and finish the drying using Jorge’s beds and covered dryer to increase the value and thus profitability for these smallholder producers.

For this natural process the cherries are selected from the ripest pickings before resting in water for 24 hours. Any floaters are removed and then the cherries are moved to the raised beds for around 25 days.
