The WestBean Coffee Roasters

San Diego, CA

A cup of coffee is beautiful in its simplicity. However the process from seed to cup is far from simple. It's an unbelievable result stemming from growing, farming, processing & sorting the fruit. Every step of the process will influence the end taste. By respecting the overall process and how the green coffee made it into our hands, we make it our responsibility to explore each varietal by diving deeper and deeper into the intricacies of the roasting process. It is only when the coffee is skillfully roasted, that it has a chance to be prepared at the highest level, crafting a great cup. To us a cup of black coffee is colorful and complex in its own way. At the WestBean we let our craft speak for itself.

Coffee is Chiapas' most important cash crop with a history from the 19th century. While most coffee is grown in Soconusco, other areas grow it, including the municipalities of Oxchuc, Panthelo, El Bosque, Tenejapa, Chenalho, Larrainzarr, and Chalchihuitan. Many Chiapas coffee farmers are indigenous and grow the coffee under the shade of native trees without the use of chemicals and pesticides. Some of this coffee is even grown in environmentally protected areas, as Chiapas' rainforests are home to thousands of animals and plants, some of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Chiapas is ranked second in forest resources in Mexico, containing nearly 60% of Mexico's tropical tree species. On top of this great biodiversity, high altitudes, steady rain, and volcanic soil all factor into this coffee.
