Our certified organic Mexican coffee from Chiapas comes from small growers in mainly the mountainous Soconusco region. The growers partner with a certified mill in Tapachula, who not only mills the coffee but cups and evaluates the end result, taking great pride in eliminating any defects that can affect the final cup.

Roasters who purchase organic coffee want to know their coffee preserves and protects the environment, but they also desire a high quality cup that will stand out above all else. Our Soconusco, Chiapas organic Mexican coffee is washed and sun dried. Cups with notes of dark chocolate, a slight citrus sweetness, some nuttiness and a well-rounded body.

I am a relatively new roaster, I've tried about 20 or so different beans, and this one was easily the best so far! Got compliments from everyone who tried it, a wonderfully mellow and buttery taste, I am buying more as soon as I post this...

I have ordered Chiapas coffee the last 3 times, previously under the user name xxxxxxx@live.com. The beans I received this time were decidedly different that the Chiapas I had ordered previously. The beans were 20% smaller and took a full 2 minutes more to roast and the taste is different. What's up? As stated, the beans I last received were different from previous Chiapas orders.

Excellent little bean. Very forgiving for the new roaster. Experimenting with the different roasts is so much fun. Trying to "coax out" the different flavors from this bean is a challenge, but i am getting better at it. Every cup, so far, has been smooth, mellow, and buttery. I could drink this all day long. Love it.

As goes with Mexican coffee it is not the worlds most carefully processed coffee, but with some amount of self sorting and poor quality bean removal this coffee can be a very bright flavorful cup.

I've had more compliments out of this coffee after roasting than any other kind. Amazing!

This is a great bean. I generally like dark Medium roasts and light Dark roasts. This bean has a great range! I personally liked the Organic FTO just a little bit more than the regular. The organic seems smoother to me.

Wow! What a great bean. Roasted it dark on open flame. Awesome flavor and really well balanced. I got lots of lemon in my batch not just notes of lemon it was almost as though it was flavored with lemon. Amazingly well balanced. Will be buying again.

I am not very knowledgeable of coffees, yet. I try out beans based on your description. I am not disappointed by this Mexican Organic Chiapas. I would recommend to friends, I brewed a smooth, enjoyable cup.

Owning a coffee company is quite an adventure, and although this is a nice bean it's not one we would invest in. Definitely a friendly n drinkable cup, no outstanding highlights though. Mexican yesssss, good absolutely but not great either. Thanks we'll keep trying, I've given samples too many customers... I'll be enjoying this at the shop 🤓

This is my go-to, standard bean order from Coffee Bean Corral. Mexican Chiapas has never let me down- I will try other beans but always need to have some of this on hand. Thanks Coffee Bean Corral!

I was unimpressed. No nose, not much flavor. I like Tanzania Peaberry much better.

I veinna roasted this and espresso ground it then rubbed it into steak. The flavor was amazing. This created a nutty smokey, lightly chocolate addition to the steak.

This was my 3rd order of Organic Chiapas (5#, 10# and 25#) so you can guess I'm very pleased with the offering. I'm roasting this pretty dark and getting the chocolate flavors I hope for. We are very pleased with these beans! And re: my Oct review... I still see the need to rest the roasted beans about a week to get the best flavor in the cup.

This organic Chiapas has turned out to be my best purchase this year. Very pleased with the flavor. Moisture content seems to be a little high at nearly 17% weight loss. I'm guessing that's what I'm seeing as some unexpected variations in roast profile. I've been taking the roast to several seconds into 2C and am happy with the end result, but it takes a little patience: the roasted beans have taken at least 7 days of rest. During that time oil starts to appear on the bean surface continuing to increase each day- that seems to coincide with the arrival of the flavors I enjoy. Very, very happy with the results as are the folks I've shared this with.

Very easy to roast. Roasted my coffee beans to a nice city+. Very smooth and taste a hint of cinnamon. A clean cup and a everyday coffee drink

One of my favorite varieties. I roast just to 2nd crack. I'm not good at cupping reviews.

This is my everyday coffee. I basically use this for drip everyday coffee and then I will also flavor some for my family. This is really good, I like to roast it medium.

Our favorite daily drinker. Just enough acid to give it life, just sweet enough for richness, nice chocolate and nutty.

This was my first green bean roast. So take my review with that information. I roast on the stove with two spoons and a cast iron pan. The roast lasts 15-18 minutes, on medium heat because I'm in no hurry. I end up with a medium to dark roast that tastes and smells great. I chose this variety of bean because it was inexpensive and didn't want to experiment with expensive beans. Looks like I picked a good bean regardless. I love it !!

I bought this for two reasons. One as a comparison to some of the African beans I’ve been buying. The second, and you’re gonma freak, as a cheap coffee to be flavored for my wife. By itself, tastes like an inexpensive coffee that I know most of my friends are accustomed to. Not subtle, not smooth, little u dertones. As a coffee to flavor, it works well

I have been persuaded to leave the dark side lol. this beautiful bean may be the one responsible for getting me to like anything not dark and shiny. My first few batches I did in my hot air popper and it just ruined them, either it never got hot enough to finish a roast (with the temperature sensor connected ) or it went too fast to an Italian roast. 😳🥺 So I decided to take some to work (pizza place) and tried the oven there. It has a conveyer belt set at 6min. And 450° which got me to first crack. after pushing them back in a bit they hit second crack and a few were showing signs of oil on the surface so I pulled em ... now that they set for a day I am drinking a beautiful cup of buttery goodness. 👍👍🤜💥🤛 If you haven't tried these beans and have the equipment to control your roast do yourself a favor and get some.

This is my favorite bean! I was so excited to find such a good price for an organic bean too. This bean is still delightful if you accidentally over or under roast a bit. It's smooth and creamy, with a bit of chocolate aftertaste. Shipping was incredibly fast.

This coffee is one of my favorites. It’s bold and chocolate taste is always the perfect cup in the morning. It’s never bitter. It’s incredibly easy to roast because the beans are small and tight. I get very little chaff off of the beans after roasting. This is a must have coffee in my house.

Smoothe buttery, chocolatey, nutty flavor. Lots of precious oil in this bean. Organically grown has the richest flavor. Roast til very dark and shiny (or a bitter taste dominates) and only roast as much as you’ll use in a few days. The oils taste freshest right after roasting. Great price too.

I brew single cup, drip for each cup I drink. I grind it, measure it, allow it to steep about a minute then filter and drink. This coffee has a very mellow flavor with out a lot of tannin or bitter taste. I enjoy it and many of my friends who only drink fancy coffee-drinks, or who don’t think they like coffee at all like it.

Roasted this to a dark roast and it produced a good cup of coffee but was a bit "dirty" tasting. I agree this is a good bean for a new roaster because it seems to produce a pretty cup regardless of the roast and also seems to roast a bit quicker for the impatient!

Makes a great cup; beans are earthy and smooth with a hint of chocolate. I roast in my oven; the beans are very uniform in size and are clearly high quality. They are super easy to work with. Beans are fresh and well packaged. Delivery was expedient.

The first crack roast makes a great every day mild to medium body coffee. You can drink this all day long if that is your thing.

Great "all day" coffee. As others have noted, it is smooth and well-balanced. This is not necessarily my favorite coffee, as I prefer fruitier flavors, however, that is what makes it so good for all day sipping. And, as stated by others, I have received more compliments on this coffee than on any of my others. I find it does better when roasted a bit longer than I normally would. It is at its best right around the start of second crack. It is a good one to roast dark as well if you're into that sort of thing. I try to have a batch that's pretty dark for when my father comes over. In summary, it roasts well, it's a crowd pleaser, and it's hard to go wrong with this bean.
