With an altitude of 865 masl,the town of San Fernando is located nearby Tuxtla Gutiérrez, the capital of the state of Chiapas.
A large community of 1300 indigenous families that work as a sustainable social enterprise with the goal to work together to find new ways to distribute their coffee directly, without middlemen – that’s exactly what the San Fernando Cooperative in the state of Chiapas is.
The ejidos are agricultural landscapes that are collectively owned and individually managed by the families. Therefore, in addition to the quality of their coffee, the producer families of San Fernando focus in particular on their commitment to the communities and the promotion of environmental awareness in order to preserve and conserve natural resources, relying on natural cultivation for their production by only using organic insecticides and fertilizers from their own production.
Through international presence and recognition, the community wishes to continue with their traditional work in the communal fields and increase the quality of their coffee.
