Tribal Mountain Trading is dedicated to supplying your distributing company, restaurant, coffee shops, grocery stores and convenient stores with quality high-altitude coffee at competetive prices.
Chiapas is the southernmost Mexican state and the second-highest population of Maya-descended indegineous people. In the past two decades, coffee production in Chiapas has been eratic due to political conflicts, free-fall coffee prices and, recently, crop sickness. However, despite these hardships the people of Chiapas have not given up on coffee and for that we're thankful. The highlands of Chiapas – filled with valleys of rich, fertile soil produced long ago from the ancient volcanoes – is a source of some of the world's best quality high-altitude Arabica coffee.
Tribal Mountain Trading is proud to offer a supply of either green, unroasted coffee beans or already roasted coffee. We can provide any type of processing and preparation including grinding, bagging and labeling of individual coffee bags.
