Finca Nuevo México is a family owned and operated farm located 1300 meters above sea level in Chipas, Mexico. Our Director of Coffee, Bill, visited the farm last winter and was very impressed by operations there.
The multi-generation family farm has been in operation since 1978, however, they’re currently in their first generation of producing coffee. Current owner, Ricardo Ibarra Baumann, inherited the farm from his Mother. Finca Nuevo México is 75 hectares with 320 additional hectares of natural reserves. At Finca Nuevo México they conduct three stages of picking to ensure only the best, mature cherries are selected.
We roast on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and to ensure the best tasting coffees, orders received after Monday may not be processed or shipped until the following week.
