Why Drink Jaguar Forest Organic Coffee?

Jaguar Forest is more than coffee– it is a call for change, health, and sustainability. Inside every bag is USDA certified organic coffee from Mexico bought at fair-trade prices from a single shade-grown origin.

Jaguar Forest offers coffee from Chiapas and Oaxaca, two of the poorest states in Mexico. Jaguar Forest pays some of the highest prices for this coffee; thus, providing farmers with a sustainable economic alternative and putting an end to cattle ranching, which is destroying the forests of southern Mexico.

Just as Jaguar Forest is for the farmers, it too is for the consumer. Every person who buys Jaguar Forest gets a promise. A promise that your coffee is selected from the highest quality beans in Mexico, that it is 100% free of chemicals and pesticides, that the farmers who grow it are treated fairly, and that it is grown in the shade of the forest, using sustainable growing practices.

Improving life, one cup at a time.

People increasingly want to consume food grown close to where they live. They know that local food is usually fresher, they are concerned about the carbon burned to bring their products to market from long distance, they want to preserve local ecosystems, and they want to support their local economy. Coffee presents a challenge for locavores—coffee grows best in warm tropical climates at high altitudes. It doesn’t grow in the continental United States. For those of us living in the continental United States, Mexico is the closest major coffee producer. The distance from the coffee growing regions of Chiapas, Mexico to the U.S. border is about 1300 miles, compared to more than 5,000 miles for coffee grown in Brazil and... Continue Reading →

Why Jaguar Forest is a Single Origin Brand

August 01, 2014

Single origin coffee is coffee from defined geographical region.  All Jaguar Forest coffee is from the “Jaguar Forest,” the forested region of the southern Mexican states of Oaxaca and Chiapas, parts of which are sometimes known as the “Sierra Madre Occidental” or the “Mesoamerican Biological Corridor.”  Our coffees are from specific regions within the Jaguar Forest, and are not mixed or blended with coffees from other parts of Mexico, or with coffee from other countries. Why does Jaguar Forest focus solely on single origin coffees from Mexico, when most coffee brands feature coffees from 10 or more countries?  The best Mexican single origin coffee has a complete flavor profile, typically featuring citrus and floral top notes, and a finish of...
