Chiapas coffee is grown in the southern state of Chiapas and distinguished for its light, delicate flavor and rich, brisk acidity with a light to medium body. The hot, tropical climate has great growing conditions and produces a fairly consistent content.
Volcanos nearby have provided fertile soil that improves nutrient delivery to the coffees, helping develop their flavours.
A fine Chiapas coffee is said to rival the complexity and power of the finer Guatemalan coffees.
