On the most Southern tip of Mexico in the remote region of Soconusco, sits Teddy’s mighty 400-hectare estate. Purchased in 2009, today the San Antonio estate is characterised by its sustainable focus and trend-setting standards for Mexican specialty coffee.

Bordering Guatemala, Soconusco is wedged between the Sierra Madre de Chiapas Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. This unique location provides a great challenge for coffee farming at San Antonio. With annual rain full averaging 4300mm and humidity typically range between 85% and 99%, fermenting and drying coffee cherry without the presence of bacteria and fungus can be difficult. Not only does the climate offer a constant struggle, in 2013, San Antonio was also hard hit by coffee leaf rust, meaning the farm had to be completely renewed, leaving Teddy starting from scratch. Seven years on and with the help of Teddy’s team of experts, San Antonio is once again producing some great coffees.

What that got us attracted into purchasing one pallet of Teddy’s coffee is not just the flavour notes but also his primary focus for the San Antonio farm. His commitment to sustainability, for both the environment and the wellbeing of his staffs, of which he hires 100 employees during the low season and 450 in the high season. Regular investment in infrastructure means that Teddy is always looking to better both his crop and the work environment for his team.

San Antonio’s work with Fundación C.a.F.E has meant that all staff now has access to learning materials, helping improve the literacy rate of the migrating pickers who often travel north from Guatemala for work. Workers also receive wages above Mexico’s established minimum wage, with a bonus structure set to reward productivity. The end result is the beautiful cup of coffee now sitting warm in your hand. From Mexico with Love.
