Mexican Coffee: Chabela, tradition and respect for the coffee grower and producer

Chabela is produced in a coffee growers' cooperative in the coffee-growing region of Chiapas, Mexico.

This cooperative was founded in 1980, being the first decaffeinator in Latin America with the best technology in the industry, for the analysis of the processes obtaining the best quality and yield of the grain, achieving decaffeination that exceeds 99% of water-based extraction, patented in 1987 and certified as organic in 2003. Business ethics can be defined as a business strategy in which commitments and responsibilities are made to the cooperative’s key groups: customers, employees, shareholders, suppliers and creditors, competitors, the community where they operate and governmental authorities.

Chabela is a decaffeinated coffee from the Terras range.
