New Single Origin Coffee Release: Mexico Chiapas

If you follow our ever-changing coffee lineup closely, you may recognize our newest single origin coffee to be similar from the one we had at our latest holiday season. Brought to Equator Coffee Roasters from the highland region of Chiapas (Acteal) in Maya Vinic, Mexico, the Mexico Chiapas will be available for purchase in-stores and online for all your summer brewing needs from July 4th until the first of August.

About Chiapas

Chiapas is Mexico’s southernmost forested state bordering Guatemala as well as the Gulf of Tehuantepec and the Pacific Ocean. It is the country’s greatest coffee-producing region, surpassing Oaxaca and Veracruz by producing 40% of Mexico’s total yield, which amounted to 1.04 million 60-kilo bags from 2018 to 2019. (1)

History Of The Cooperative “Producers’ Union Maya Vinic”

The 590 members that make up The Cooperative “Producers’ Union Maya Vinic”, or simply Maya Vinic, are indigenous Tzetlal and Toztzil farmers who are situated in the highland communities of Chalchihuitán, Chenalhó, and Pantelhó in Chiapas, Mexico (2).

You can read more about the history of this organization in our previous blog post about it here.

Cooperative Coffees continues to support Maya Vinic since purchasing their first Fair Trade coffee export back in 2002. Most recently, Cooperative Coffees supported Maya Vinic’s project last May regarding “Strengthening Food Production of Family Gardens.”

To keep up to date with Maya Vinic, you can follow them on Instagram @mayavinic, on Facebook at Maya Vinic, on Twitter (X) @Mayavinic, or check out their website at

Tasting Notes And Flavors

The Mexico Chiapas is a USDA organic, FLO-certified, washed process specialty coffee with our roast level 4. So it’s still a light roast, but it’s been roasted a little longer than the roast level 3 version we had last year. This one also features a cupping score of 83.63 and it was grown at an altitude of 1000 to 1650 m.

Not only is the roast level different this time around, but the featured tasting notes are now citrus, brown sugar, and milk chocolate as opposed to our former lime, nougat, and salted caramel ones.

Here’s what our Head Roaster, Justin Houle, had to say about the Mexico Chiapas’ flavor profile:

“[It has a] citrus-like acidity that lingers. When it’s [freshly ground,] it has scents that are reminiscent of brown spices and caramel. When brewed, this fan-favourite coffee is very forward with [its] milk chocolate flavour that carries through while you discover the notes of brown sugar and hints of citrus.” 

Try our Mexico Chiapas and start your summer mornings with smooth flavors in a bright cup of coffee!
