Our certified organic Mexican coffee from Chiapas comes from small growers in mainly the mountainous Soconusco region of Chiapas. 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 is preserving and protecting 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 & sun dried and cups with notes of dark chocolate, a slight citrus sweetness, a nutty flavor 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...

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 have ordered Chiapas coffee the last 3 times, previously under the user name 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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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.
