Las Cotorras coffee is grown in the highlands of the state of Chiapas, home to the Triunfo Biosphere Reserve. As you journey through the remote highlands here, an incredibly beautiful species of bird can be seen. These birds are called Cotorras and they find their perfect habitat on coffee farms that produce the amazing coffees in the highlands of Chiapas. Although these birds can be seen in many parts of the world, the Cotorra is endemic to Mexico and many can be found in the jungle in Chiapas. In the region these birds are not just known for preferring a “coffee lands” habitat for nesting, but also for being a symbol of authenticity and freedom.
In this area you can witness the juxtaposition of southern and northern species, which are attracted to the area’s natural richness. El Triunfo Biosphere is a protected area of close to 120 thousand hectares. It represents the very last of the Central American cloud forests, where naturally occurring condensation is trapped by the forest, giving life to a large number of plant and animal species. In this region, we have been working with communities of very small-scale coffee growers, members of cooperatives in the region that produce high quality and organic coffee!
