The coffee at Guadalupe Zaju is 100% shade grown, the farm is Rainforest Alliance, Utz AND Cafe Practices certified. The farm also takes water – a scarce resource in previously water-plentiful Chiapas seriously. Filtered water fountains run for the workers and aqueducts bring pure water from the springs above for use not just for processing but also for drinking and cooking. Water conservation is also taken very seriously on the farm. Previously, each of the smaller farms had their own mill. The farm has a water treatment plant for all water used during processing and has consolidated operations and process all coffee at a single mill, where water can be more adequately treated through the mill. The old mill at Chanjul has now been converted to a school.
We take these exceptional unroasted beans from Teddy and roast them into our Cardinal Coffee Single Origin Roast.
