This is a washed Maragogype from an Indigenous run coffee cooperative called Indigenas De La Sierra Madre De Motozintla San Isidro Labrador (ISMAM) in Chiapas.
From afar Mexico appears to be a growing economic force, however the coffee-producing states in southern Mexico face a different reality. Oaxaca and Chiapas are the two poorest states in Mexico with poverty rates of 60-80% and extreme poverty rates of 20-40%. The goal is to work with these areas to increase the household income from coffee by up to 10 times the average income derived from selling at the local market price.
