Finca San Antonio Chicharras is a single farm decaffeinated coffee from the Chiapas region of Mexico. It was decaffeinated at the modern Mountain Water Processing plant owned by Descamex in Veracruz which also happens to be the country’s main port city for the coffee trade. Chiapas is perhaps the most significant area of quality coffee production, its location being just north of the border with Guatemala. In addition to its wealth of coffee lands Chiapas is known for its Mayan ruins and archaeological sites. Finca San Antonio Chicharras is specifically in the municipality of Tapachula, the southernmost part of Chiapas on the Pacific side. This is the main border city with Guatemala and it was founded by the Aztecs in the 13th century. Coffee in the central growing regions of Chiapas can approach 2000 meters though this easy cupping coffee is grown at roughly 1500 meters.
