Mexico – Finca La Lagunilla

La Lagunilla is in the Zapoteca community and is situated in the pine and oak forested area of the Juarez mountain range. La Lagunilla is an organization of growers from Ixhuatlan. In 2003 when coffee prices reached an all time low many people abandoned the land in search of something more sustainable.

The remaining 85 people founded the La Lagunilla community. Finca La Lagunilla took 3rd place with jury taste descriptors of chocolate and peach. The coffee plants are intermixed with pine and oak trees which provide shade and nourishment. Finca La Lagunilla is certified organically grown.
