The Region

The La Concordia region is renowned for producing excellent coffee due to various factors such as: the agroclimatic conditions of the area, altitude, soils, great diversity of natural interactions and ofcourse, the people who through effort and care are able to produce the “Oro Verde” (green gold as it is called).

This region is also well known for it’s dry and rainy seasons, which are very well synchronized with the physiology of the coffee plant. During harvest season, the weather is cold with little rain which helps to extend the fermentation time and drying conditions, and as a consequence, improves the coffee cup quality. Variables such as climate behavior, the endemic vegetation and fauna interaction (large cat species such as jaguar and birds such as quetzal among others) creates a top priority responsibility to enhance sustainable coexistence between coffee productive activities and conservation of this environment.

As a result of this coffee culture and endemic ecosystems interaction, it is possible to offer sustainable and high-end quality coffee to the world.

The Process

Puebla is the third largest coffee producer in the country and its coffee is recognised for quality and distinguished flavour, a result of mineral-rich soil and the careful agronomic and processing practices of its smallholder farmers. Producers traditionally follow a washed process regimen passed down from one generation to another. Producers typically cultivate organically to protect their land and maintain healthy soil.

The process begins with the harvest of mature coffee cherries. These are then de-pulped, fermented for a time that can vary depending on the environment and temperature, then washed in artisanal mills. Finally the coffee is dried in the sun, typically on patios around the home of the farmer.
