About Our Coffee
Café Mam purchases green coffee from cooperatives growing specialty grade, certified organic, high altitude ("altura"), Arabica beans in the Sierra Madre mountain regions of Chiapas, Mexico. The cooperatives use sustainable and organic farming practices to cultivate their coffee under the native forest canopy. The canopy's shade helps create the ideal temperature for the coffee to grow, and the farmers’ commitment to sustainability protects the forest from clear-cutting, from the harmful effects of pesticide use, and helps protect migratory bird habitat.
We are proud to offer decaffeinated beans through the Swiss Water® Process, using water from the pristine environment of the coastal mountains of British Columbia, Canada to gently remove the caffeine until the coffee beans are 99.9% caffeine-free, maintaining the bean’s distinctive origin and flavor characteristics. This certified organic process uses only pure water to remove the caffeine, resulting in great-tasting coffee that is never subjected to chemicals. It’s decaffeinated coffee without compromise.
You can be confident your coffee is as fresh as can be. We drum-roast our coffee in small batches and ship the same day it’s roasted. To preserve the freshness of our exceptional coffee, we recommend storing it in an air-tight container in a cool and dry space and consuming it within three months of the roast date (roast date is stamped on each bag). We offer the perfect storage solution with our steel coffee canisters, alternatively, you can use screw-top jars or food storage containers.
Each lot of coffee we purchase is graded and regularly sampled to be utilized in the best possible way for our different roasts and blends, and to meet a variety of taste preferences. Find your perfect roast or blend now!
