Say hello to Triunfo Verde, a delicious sweet and citric coffee grown in the Jaltenengo region of Mexico. The women's association for Triunfo Verde Co-op has 51 members who have come together in order to collectively face some of the issues that affect women farmers in Mexico, including gender-based domestic violence, legal obstacles to obtaining land ownership, limited opportunities to diversify the family income, fewer educational opportunities, and economic dependence on men. Specifically the group has come together to launch a financial program for women called FinMujer (Financing of the Coffee Woman). This initiative seeks to distribute funds for farm renovation, home improvements, the establishment of savings funds, and more.
The farms contributing to Triunfo Verde Co-op are located in the buffer zone of El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve. The biosphere is located in the highlands of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas. El Triunfo is a rare and valuable sanctuary which requires continued protection. All the coffee they produce is shade-grown, and biological corridors are created in order to facilitate bird and animal migration.
You'll fall in love with the balance between sweet and citric flavors, as well as hints of almond and caramel.
