Specialty coffee is taking hold across Mexico. Fine coffee shops are using specially grown coffee beans that produce distinctive flavors and aromas.

There is a specialty coffee shop in Mexico City owned by a couple. They’ve traveled there to southern Chiapas State to learn more about the origins of the specialty coffee they sell.

It’s grown there in the in the indigenous highlands of Chiapas, Mexico’s most important coffee producing state.

The people in the coffee grove actually work in specialty coffee shops in Mexican cities. They’re to learn first-hand about how the special flavors are produced.

Mexico’s specialty coffee producers are working to strengthen the domestic market. Once that’s firmly in place, the coffee beans that produce this fine brew will be shipped to the rest of the world.
