Our DECAF MEXICO CHIAPAS is a Swiss Qater Procees coffee that is both Fair Trade and organically grown from Campesinos Ecológicos de la Sierra Madre de Chiapas coffee cooperative (CESMACH), located in the Chiapas region of Mexico. The coffee is processed at Union El Triunfo in Independencia, a municipality of La Concordia, Chiapas. CESMACH was founded in 1994 by smallholder farmers seeking more transparent access to the coffee market. At the time the local market was dominated by many intermediaries and an absence of technical support and pre-finance. This led to a challenging environment for the farmers. So, the farmers organized themselves into a co-op, which today has 663 members. The co-op is well known for its strong leadership and adept organization and operates under 3 central maxims:
  • Conservation of natural resources
  • Strong values of respect, loyalty, democracy, social participation, and non-discrimination
  • Economic profitability and efficiency
Organic farming is strongly promoted, resulting in the certification of more than sixty percent of the organization’s members. In total, members have 1,250 hectares under organic coffee cultivation. Premiums are used to support a community savings bank to facilitate member access to financing.
