MEXICO: THE LAND OF HIGH SPIRITS
The Mexican Chiapas El Triunfo is sourced from family-owned farms organized by Cooperativa Campesinos Ecológicos de la Sierra Madre de Chiapas. The producers are heartily dedicated to organic practices that protect more than 800 plant species and 390 bird species that inhabit El Triunfo.
Chiapas El Triunfo FTO evokes a mellow, sweet citric taste in this medium-bodied cup with a cocoa flavor and a nutty aftertaste.
Home to the greatest number of Spanish speakers in the world, Mexico’s rich history and traditions captivates us all! The culture of Mexico today is a blend of influences handed down by a manifold of civilizations dating back to the early Mesoamerican era. Mexico’s citizens are immensely proud of their heritage and nation, which reflects in the meanings behind the colors of the nation’s flag. Green symbolizes hope and victory, white stands for the purity of Mexican philosophy and red represents the blood shed by the country’s heroes.
On November 1st, the people of Mexico observe “Dia de los Muertos,” or “Day of the Dead,” to honor the lives lost while celebrating the continuation of life. It is a time for commemorating ancestors with whom many believe that they can communicate with during the rituals of this holiday.
