Edelmira Coffee regroups 35 small-scale coffee farms situated within the “El Triunfo” Biosphere
Reserve, nestled in the southern part of Chiapas' Sierra Madre region.
With a shared objective of enhancing their coffee processing capabilities, maintaining quality
standards, and achieving stable incomes, producers have joined forces with Edelmira's Micromill.
Here, they receive ongoing support and guidance to improve their farming practices, refine their
harvesting techniques, and elevate the processing of their coffee beans.
Among these dedicated coffee producers are siblings Abraham and Manuel Sanchez, who oversee
coffee production in the Tsetsal community of "El Vergel." In this lush environment, they cultivate
some of Chiapas' finest indigenous coffee cultivars, including Bourbon, Caturra, and Maragogype.
Their coffee plantations flourish at an altitude of 1,700 metres above sea level. This year, Edelmira
and the Sanchez brothers embarked on a special project: craŌing an exclusive Maragogype lot that
highlights the exceptional quality of their land.
Edelmira’s field technicians meticulously monitored the ripeness of the coffee cherries throughout
the harvest season. When the cherries reached their peak (23° Brix), the Sanchez family embarked
on a 3 days harvesting spree.
GrainPro bags for stabilisation and subsequent transfer to the Dry mill.
This careful process ensured the preservation of the coffee's quality from harvest to processing.
