You might wonder what a matador has to do with dancing. A bullfight can be perceived as a dance between the matador, cape, and bull. This "dance" also inspired the creation of Paso Doble (dance). The matador, whether bullfighting or Paso Doble dancing, is the main performer, always portraying undeniable confidence and calculated movements.
Our MATADOR coffee is from Chiapas, Mexico, where the mountain ranges provide an ideal altitude and climate for specialty coffee production.
Productores Serranos de Café de Motozintla (Serranos) have farms reaching 1750 meters above sea level near the El Triunfo biosphere reserve. There's a high level of difficulty in cultivating heirloom varietals like bourbon using organic practices despite the devastating toll of leaf rust throughout Mexico.
Serranos is a group of nearly 200 growers spread throughout 22 communities in the southern end of the Sierra Madre mountain range in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. High elevations and commitment to organic practices is the common bond among the Serranos group. Each producer processes coffee with their own micro-mill and dry the coffee in the sun on patios before transporting the coffee in parchment to a centrally located dry mill facility where the coffee is prepared for export. Most of the farms have less than 10 acres of coffee cultivation, which makes farm level production of organic inputs, like Bokashi, an achievable means of maintaining proper plant nutrition. These organic practices also provide a protective buffer for more than 800 plant species and 390 bird species that make their home in the El Triunfo biosphere reserve.
