Finca Nueva Linda is a specialty-coffee estate managed by producer Jose Moguel. It is located in the Sierra Madre mountains of southern Mexico, in the state of Chiapas. The farm shares a buffer with the Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, a 50,000-acre tropical cloud forest which helps to temper a changing climate and provide rich soil and clean water. El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve is one of the world’s most diverse forest reserves. This reserve contains Mesoamerica’s largest continuous cloud forest, and it serves as a refuge to thousands of plant and animal species. El Triunfo is a rare and valuable sanctuary, which requires continued protection.
Don Jose depulps his coffee at Nueva Linda, uses demucilaging machines to remove the fruit and sugar, washes in clean water, and dries in the sun on patios.
