About This Region:
Mexico is one of the largest coffee-producing countries in the world, and the largest producer of organic coffee. The vast majority of organic Mexican coffee is grown by small farmers in the southern-most states of Chiapas and Oaxaca. Coffee is one of Mexico’s most lucrative exports, making it key to the economic survival to nearly half a million small farmers and their families.
Coffee arrived in Mexico in the late 1700’s when the Spanish brought plants from Cuba and the Dominican Republic. Its commercial cultivation began decades later when German and Italian immigrants relocated from Guatemala and other Central American nations.
