 THE STORY BEHIND

Finca Santa Fe was founded by Mexicans in 1855, and was acquired by German immigrants in 1920, at which point the name was changed to Finca La Esperanza. In 1990 the estate was bought by Mexicans again and the Name was changed to back to Finca Santa Fe de Motozintla. Chiapas is home to Tacaná volcano, Central America’s second highest peak at 4060 mt.

Santa Fe is OCIA certified (Organic Crop Improvement Association). The climate at Santa Fe is optimal for producing quality coffee, with native natural surroundings. Minimum temperatures at Santa Fe reach 17°C in the winter, and a maximum temperature of 26°C in the summer. Santa Fe also has an educational program on its property featuring preschool and elementary education.


The Mountain Water Process
Please find here a short video that explains how this method works

This is a natural decaffeination process. The green beans are immersed in water in order to extract the caffeine. The beans then go through a system involving pressure, temperature, and vacuum. The coffee holds all of the components of flavour and body without the use of any chemical. The water is then filtered and reused again in the extraction process.
The result is a coffee that is 99.9% caffeine free, organic, and if required can be rainforest, kosher, and fair trade certified.
