Our Story

The story of ZiM Coffee begins in the Northern Forest of Chiapas Mexico, where 341 local family farmers come together to grow coffee of the Arabica, Typica, Bourbon, and Mundo Novo varieties. This coffee is shade-grown-organic with no agrochemicals used, ensuring great biodiversity in our coffee plantation and our coffee bean quality.

In collaboration with students from Santa Clara University and Capeltic Café, we leverage our profits and reinvest them as zero interest loans, empowering the financial capital of these indigenous farmers and their families. Our mission is to facilitate social conditions for such farming communities to reach fulfillment more fully and easily.
