🇲🇽 LA RUTA DEL CAFE

 03 PART 1 COFFEE ARGOVIA FINCA Chiapas

At the end of the 18th century, coffee came to Mexico from the Antilles, but was not exported in great quantities until the 1870s. During the 1980s, coffee became the country’s most valuable export crop. Today Mexico is the largest source of U.S. coffee imports. The Highlands Once a coffee plant is mature, it will produce flowers; this normally happens shortly after heavy rainfall. And then, after the flowers, comes the cherries. Traditional coffee drying in the HIGHLANDS Selectively picked Only the ripe cherries are harvested and they are picked individually by hand. Pickers rotate among the trees every eight to ten days, choosing only the cherries which are at the peak of ripeness. It usually takes two to four years after planting for a coffee plant to produce coffee beans that are ripe enough to harvest.

Argovia  Map of Chiapas ruta del Cafe  

 

The plant eventually grows small white blossoms that drop and are replaced by green berries. These green berries will become a deep red color as they ripen. It takes about 9 months for the green cherries to reach their deepest red color. Because this kind of harvest is labor-intensive, and thus more costly, it is used primarily to harvest the finer arabica beans. Workers sorting and pulping coffee beans in Guatemala

 HIghlands  

 

The laborers who pick coffee by hand receive payment by the basketful. As of 2003, payment per basket is between US$1.00 to $10 with the overwhelming majority of the laborers receiving payment at the lower end. An experienced coffee picker can collect up to six or seven baskets a day. Depending on the grower, coffee pickers are sometimes specifically instructed to not pick green coffee berries since the seeds in the berries are not fully formed or mature. This discernment typically only occurs with growers who harvest for higher end/specialty coffee where the pickers are paid better for their labor. Lots including unripe coffee fruit are often used to produce cheaper mass consumer coffee beans, which are characterized by a displeasingly bitter/astringent flavor and a sharp odor. Red berries, with their higher aromatic oil and lower organic acid content, are more fragrant, smooth, and mellow. As such, coffee picking is one of the most important stages in coffee production.

 

 

CoffeeThe sun rises over the Chiapas mountains and the jungle around the Tacaná volcano awake. The area of ​​the Soconusco heights was totally wild, unknown and without having been explored before by man. There are no pyramids or ruins of ancient civilizations. 1,151km away, the world was very different and contrasting. President Porfirio Díaz was in the National Palace of Mexico City working on major structural reforms for the country, with the aim of developing and innovating the country’s economy. Díaz had a vision of a prosperous Mexico and was not satisfied with the way companies of that time performed. For this reason, he decided to invite entrepreneurs from then first world economies which he aspired for Mexico to advance. These invitations were sent mainly through embassies and churches, which were answered by Italians, French, English and Germans, to name a few.

Coffee production in Mexico is the world’s 8th largest and is mainly concentrated to the south central to southern regions of the country. The coffee is mainly Arabica, and lately Robusta which grows particularly well in the coastal region of Soconusco, Chiapas, near the border of Guatemala.

In Benao getting the stuffing kicked out of us. Fourth day waiting for Papagayos, or whatever they’re called here, to give us a break. Swells big, too. We were able to make a dinghy landing once and got diesel with the assistance of Alexis, the gardener at Villa Marina resort. 30 usd and it was about a 30 min drive both ways. Diesel was $2.88 so at the end of the day, cost us about $100 for 25 gal. Can be a rough anchorage, so time your weather. We did, but weather gribs lie. Hoping to get going for final approach to Panama City Sunday or Monday. S/V Myla
Venao arround the corner from Punta Mala

Can have southerly swell – so if you see a lot of surfers – buckle up – watch a group of rocks on the port side as you approach the entrance to the bay at 07°24.6033’N 080°12.885′ W
