At the southern tip of Mexico in Soconusco, Teddy Esteve’s 212-hectare estate, Chanjul was first founded in 1925. Today the Motozintla estate sets the standards for sustainability and Mexican specialty coffee.
After the rust problem of 2012 and 2013, Teddy Esteve specially selected and planted hybrid and Marsellesa varieties which are more resistant to coffee rust. Today, it is a 100% rust-free and resistant farm. When the plantation is 20 years old, the plot will be removed and replanted with new trees.
100% shade-grown, combined with the latitude, annual rainfall of 2500mm and annual temperatures of 26°C - the unique warmth of their soil containing a high percentage of organic materials creates the perfect environment to produce high quality coffee.
All coffee cherries are hand-harvested and sorted for the ripest cherries to achieve the highest concentration of sugars in the cherry. At the farm’s mill 50km away, the cherry is cleaned and floated in freshwater to remove any floaters (aka "vanos").
During the drying process, thermometers control the ambient temperatures and relative humidity around 16-24°C. After 8-10 days, when the moisture reaches below 12%, the coffee is prepared to be sent to the other end of Mexico to Veracruz for export.Teddy believes in sustainable production by investing in infrastructure for the benefit of farm workers (free schooling for children, canteen, relaxation).
