The reputation of Colombian coffee is such that it has sometimes shadowed Mexican coffee which, however, has nothing to envy to its neighbour. The rumour in the industry is even that, during coffee-rust epidemics, Mexican coffee beans were smuggled into Colombia and were passed for Colombian beans. They are that good!
Historically, Mexican coffee beans have often been used in blends as they bring out the flavour of the other beans they are married to, but this trend has slowly changed as people have discovered or re-discovered the unique character and the quality of Mexican coffee beans on their own.
Mexican coffee farms were severely impacted by low coffee prices in the 1990s, like many coffee-growing countries, which forced the industry to re-invent itself. Mexico invested heavily into a ‘reconversion’ towards organic farming and is now the largest producer of Certified Organic coffee in the world.
