This coffee is grown in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Southern Mexico in the Chiapas region. It is grown by a cooperative group of farmers who work together as the Unión de Ejidos Profesor Otilio Montaño, or UDEPOM, for short. Ninety-nine percent of the Union members are native Mayan, indigenous from Mache, Tzotzi, Tojolaba, Jaleco and Tzeltal origins. The coffee is grown at between 4,800 and 5,400 feet in altitude and is comprised of family farms between one and ten acres. Each worker in the Union is paid on a work-share basis, rather than by farm yield.
An interesting word of note is that this coffee has the smallest carbon footprint of all of our decaffeinated coffees. It is both grown and decaffeinated in the mountains of Mexico. All of our other decaffeinated coffees that hail from farms outside of Mexico must make a stop here at the best decaffeination facility in the the world prior to being shipped to our Roastery in the Berkshires.
The Royal Select Water Process removes caffeine from the coffee bean without the use of harmful chemicals or byproducts. We are big proponents of this process because it quite seamlessly removes the caffeine and leaves all of the great coffee flavor.
Our Organic coffees are certified organic at origin by the National Organic Program (NOP). The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) certifies our Roastery to process 100% Certified Organic coffee through Baystate Organic Certifiers (Winchendon, MA). We ardently support organic agriculture and farming without the use of pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers.
