Mexico’s coffee production is the world’s eighth largest and is mainly concentrated to the south central and southern regions of the country. The coffee is mainly Arabica, which grows particularly well in the coastal region of Soconusco, Chiapas, near the border of Guatemala.
At the end of the 18th century, coffee came to Mexico from the Antilles, but was not exported in great quantities until the 1870s. After a century coffee became the country’s most valuable export crop. Today Mexico is the largest source of U.S. coffee imports.
Notable varieties include Altura, Liquidambar MS and Pluma Coixtepec.
