Let’s give it up for women producers! This unique coffee with flavor notes of Cane Sugar, Honey, & Yellow Fruits comes to us from El Capricho, the farm of Teresa De Jesus Velazquez Boralles in Chiapas, Mexico. Chiapas is Mexico's southernmost state with ancient archaeological sites, rich biodiversity and gorgeous landscapes including tropical rainforests, lakes and mountains, and an active volcano. There are many different indigenous groups in this region who strive to keep their traditions, languages and folklore alive in the face of the government trying to dispossess communities of their land and principally benefit big business through tourism.

Farmers like Teresa are from remote areas, very marginalized, and have faced decades of lack of access to education, better prices, and opportunities. The economy of this region is based on cultivation of vegetables, animals, and of course, coffee. Our importers, Caravela Coffee, have done a lot of work with their farmer education program, PECA, in this area, providing resources, stability and infrastructure. For example, many of these farmers do not have cars or trucks to move the coffee. Without PECA’s help, they would not be able to sell produce in the specialty coffee market and end up in the commercial coffee market.

 

10% of sales from all Get Mad coffee and merch goes to our partner organizations who are doing the real, hard work to truly make change amidst incredible injustice.
