Enjoy a refreshing break with our sweet and creamy Mexican Chiapas SHG single origin coffee!
Given Mexico's Chiapas region's ability to produce a consistent, lightly sweetened cup, we profiled these coffee as a medium roast to give the brew a little more body without losing the origin's distinctive sweetness.
Mexican coffee growers in the Chiapas region tend to harvest some of the best crops while overcoming the numerous difficulties they have encountered over the years, such as the strain of societal upheavals and coffee leaf rust. In southern Mexico, close to the Guatemalan border, the superior growing environment places the Chiapas coffee from Mexico on level with the best Arabica from Guatemala in terms of quality.
On the Naming of the Coffee
At The Crackpots Coffee Roaster, we always try to help beginners and advanced drinkers alike to understand more about coffees. One of our efforts is to explain the various cryptic names of coffees which could be confusing.
Here’s a breakdown of this coffee:
|Mexico||Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a country in the southern portion of North America. It is bordered to the north by the United States; to the south and west by the Pacific Ocean; to the southeast by Guatemala, Belize, and the Caribbean Sea; and to the east by the Gulf of Mexico.|

A processing method in which the skin, flesh and mucilage are stripped from the coffee bean within days of the coffee cherry being plucked from the tree and washed with water before drying. This removes any impurities and makes the coffee taste cleaner.
|SHG||Strictly High Grown (SHG) Coffee – also known as Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) Coffee – is coffee grown altitudes more than 1,200 meters (4,000 feet) above sea level.|
