El Triunfo is situated in the mountains of Sierra Madre de Chiapas, south of the Chiapas State. The terrain is generally steep and mountainous. The reserve is constituted as the limit between two of the largest hydrological regions of the state; the Pacific coast and the Grijalva-Usumacinta River. As a primary Pleistocene refuge, its location in the mountains of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas, it is considered an endemic area for different groups of plants and animals. El Triunfo is the most diverse evergreen cloud forest in Mexico, and one of the most important sites for bird migration.
El Triunfo currently brings together 68 indigenous families originating in the foothills of Tacaná volcano upper area of the Municipality of Chiapas, along the Guatemalan border. The COOP cultivates 265 hectares, and 22 of the members are women. The cooperative’s partners are members of the Maya Organic Network Organization. This organization works to develop agro-ecological productivity and quality certification while incorporating indigenous practices.
We want to bring our enthusiasm out through our choice of offerings and blends. HighNote Coffee places an emphasis on Honduras as the crown jewel of Central American coffees, to a select variety of single origins from other nations around the world. We will never lay claim to deep knowledge of how a coffee should taste but recognize its complexity and ever changing moods. These are pursuits that started us as producers and now roasters.
