From Chiapas, Mexico to your Cup
Mexico Chiapas Sierra Azul is a Fairtrade Certified coffee with a medium-bodied softness, a clean finish, and a nut-like aroma. It has a light brightness to it, and is one of our favorites as a breakfast coffee.
Our Mexico Chiapas Sierra Azul is a coffee cooperative located in the southern highlands of Chiapas within the buffer zone of the El Triunfo Biosphere. El Triunfo is an area of great ecological importance because it contains two of the most complex and beautiful ecosystems in the world: the Cloud Forest and the Tropical Rain Forest.
El Triunfo’s unique ecosystems are home to an incredible quantity of plant and animal species considered rare or in danger of extinction. Sierra Azul members are deeply committed to sustainable agricultural practices that prevent the encroachment of agriculture into the Biosphere and the disturbance of the natural resources within its boundaries.
The coffees we source from this cooperative are from 100% women owned farms, part of the Cafe Femenino program. Many of the women who produce Café Femenino in this Sierra region of Chiapas are decendents of the ethnic ancient Mayan culture of Mame, though today few that are able to speak their mother language of Mame.

We first drank this coffee while visiting the 4UR ranch in Colorado. We asked where they bought it and have been ordering from Kaladi ever since. It is a fantastic blend. We have tried others that were very good as well. We suggest you give them a try, you won’t be disappointed.

My ‘go-to’ everyday coffee. I keep 3 or 4 pounds in my freezer so I never run out. Mild, nice flavor for that first cup of the day. I buy the special editions and others KaladI offers but this is my family’s favorite.

I’m a coffee snob and ordered it from NYC – where I grew up – the first four years I lived in Denver. Then … I discovered KALADI’S MEXICO beans and I haven’t looked back. I sent it to fellow coffee lovers, friends and family across the country, for graduations and birthdays, throughout covid to cheer people up – and no matter how often I other “best” beans (recommended by friends and when I travel), I always, always, always come back to this one. It’s the BEST.

All of Kaladi’s coffees are delicious but THIS is my all-time favorite! I’ve tried many others but I always come back to this one – it’s perfect early in the morning as your first cup of coffee – light but satisfying, mild and smooth, delicious but not overwhelming. Try this one — you won’t regret it!!

My favorite of all varieties- the aroma of freshly ground coffee
