Description

Santiago Sochiltepec is a town of one thousand people, 420 indigenous Zapoteca households and 80 cell phones. It’s also the most populated town in the entire municipality, which spans the Sierra Madre mountain range that separates Oaxaca’s Central Valley from the Pacific Coast. This area is cooled by pine forests, evening fog and morning dew – making it the perfect climate for coffee. It’s not chance that this is the heart of Mexico’s famous La Pluma region, home to the Typica varietal of the same name and now protected as a recognized geographic indicator. Farmers from Sochiltepec are turning on to specialty one by one, and we are featuring these household lots to encourage more to give specialty a chance.
