CAPITAN ORGANIC

Capitán Organic is the result of the work of several communities in Chiapas, located in Ángel Albino Corzo, Capitán Luis Ángel Vidal, La Concordia, and Montecristo de Guerrero. This coffee is produced along the well-known coffee-growing region of Ángel Albino Corzo and the significant economic zone of Frailesca and Sierra Mariscal, in the Sierra Madre de Chiapas, Mexico.


The coffee is produced using environmentally friendly, organic practices, free from the use of fertilisers and other agrochemicals that are harmful to the health of the soil and the biosphere. Chiapas is a state recognised for being the largest national provider of organic coffee.



Landscapes of the Region

The crops are influenced by the microclimates of the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve (Sierra Madre del Sur), a UNESCO-protected area that preserves 10 of the 19 types of vegetation found in Mexico and is home to the country's most threatened ecosystems: The “Bosque de niebla” and “El Lluvioso” which translate to the The Fog Forest and the Rainy One.

Its variety of microclimates and ecosystems favor the cultivation of the coffee fruit, which, along with beans and corn, is of great importance to the economy and food sovereignty of the region's communities.



Coffee plantations are developed at altitudes ranging from 1,200 to 1,800 meters above sea level and coexist with other species under a tree canopy that protects them from direct sunlight, known as traditional polycultures.


Some producers have started to diversify their resources through the provision of environmental services and the conservation of the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve.
