MEXICO ORGANIC FAIR TRADE
Our Mexico Organic Fair Trade is a great crowd-pleasing dark roast coffee. It has low acidity, a medium body, and a rich flavor profile. It starts with chocolate at the beginning of the cup, and quickly notes of caramel appear on the palate. In the middle, spicy notes of cinnamon pop into the cup, and they combine with the chocolate notes to form a long, sweet, roasty finish. This coffee is one of the favorites of our cupping team.

Story: This company favorite is sourced from family owned farms organized around Sociedad de Producción Rural Unión de Ejidos y Comunidades San Fernando, S.P.R. de R.I., an organization operating in the municipalities of San Fernando, Jaltenango de la Paz, Ocozocoautla, Villa Corzo, La Concordia, Siltepec, Angel Albino Corzo, Bella Vista, Chicomuselo, Montecristo, Amatenango and Tuxtla Gutiérrez within the state of Chiapas, Mexico. The Sociedad de Producción Rural Unión de Ejidos y Comunidades San Fernando has invested in nurseries to support more than 1,300 farmers to renovate their coffee farms. The organization is also leading efforts to assist their members to make improvements to their houses, and diversification initiatives such as coffee shops, and training programs to use Vermicompost that uses earthworms to turn organic wastes into very high quality compost.
This is the perfect morning coffee for us. It’s rich and full bodied with amazing flavor. We like a strong cup of coffee and it does not disappoint. A touch of whipping cream sets it up nicely. Serve it with dessert as well. Love that McLaughlin supports organic and fair trade practices! We order this in 5lb bags!
I've tried a million coffees (being in middle-age) including a wide variety of McLaughlin coffees. This Mexican Organic Fair Trade is truly the best and most reliable coffee I've had, ever. That assessment is based on flavor/quality only - the fair trade and organic aspects are just bonuses!
We have a monthly order for the MEXICO ORGANIC FAIR TRADE. We give it as a gift to other coffee lovers. It has never missed on taste or freshness. A daily favorite for us in the morning.
