Our Farmers - Oaxaca - San Mateo, Yoloxochitlán
San Mateo Yoloxochitlán belongs to the district of Teotitlán within the region of La Cañada in the state of Oaxaca with a total population of 3614 inhabitants.
This is one of the highest regions of the Mazateca mountain range, which to belongs to the Sierra Madre Oriental of Oaxaca. Temperatures are predominantly subtropical, with average temperatures of 77 °F. The producers of the Association Integradora de Cooperativas Oaxaqueñas are proud of their roots and preserve their customs, but are also open to new practices as long as these respect the environment and conserve the natural resources of their locality. This microlot was curated by our very own Concepcion Ortiz, Global’s palate in Mexico. She built this microlot with her cupping spoon by choosing the best scoring parcels from producers of San Mateo. These star producers have processed their coffee with extreme care to ensure the quality in the cupping table as they seek to enter the specialty market. They want their families to have better opportunities and are aware that they will be able to do so if their coffee improves harvest after harvest.
