Organic Shade Grown Mexico
This bright, nutty-flavored whole bean coffee with the crisp finish is certified organic and grown under shade trees on small farms in Chiapas, Mexico. Farmers near the El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, the last remaining cloud forest in southern Mexico, are helping to protect its biodiversity by using traditional shade tree growing methods, which provide a natural habitat for the forest's many migratory birds species.
For more than a decade, Starbucks and Conservation International have been working together with farmers to help protect the biodiversity of forests like El Triunfo.

My ex girlfriend worked at Starbucks as a barista for 5 years. During that time I was allotted several drinks/products for free. After becoming pseudo coffee connoisseur, I was led with the conclusion that Organic Shade Grown Mexico was the best tasting/feeling coffee out of the whole bunch! It's the apidame of that coffee smell you get a whiff of at the grocery store! It's the coffee you'd expect to wake up to at a luxe bed and breakfast. Good luck finding it now!
As close as I have ever found to favorite I could get in Oaxaca. Sure hope you continue to make it available. I do not find it in shops anymore.
It is sooooo smoooooth and non-acidic. I really like the fact that it is organic. I bought this at my local Starbucks store and when I went back to purchase more was told it was discontinued. I was thrilled to find it on line!
This is my favorite Starbucks coffee and it never lets me down.
Nice smooth flavor that never disappoints. I wish it was brewed in the stores.
Hands down, my favorite Starbucks bean. Brewed properly, it has a silky smoothness, and an almost sweet bouquet reminiscent of vanilla and cherries. Set up a subscription, and treat yourself right with this exceptional coffee...
I am a bold coffee lover and I like this coffee. You can tell it's a medium blend, but it has a great nutty aftertaste.
iv'e bought mex coffee for about 6 yrs and this has got tobe the worst batch of coffee if star bucks doesn't tighten up i''ll just go back to maxwell at least i'll have no high expectations
Sometimes this particular coffee is difficult to find at the free standing Starbucks stores and I have yet to find it in a store inside a store. To eliminate the amount of stress in life over which I have control, I have decided to just order it online - should have thought of that earlier....I must not have had enough Organic Shade Grown Mexico. I have my picky 5 cup European coffee maker with which I can vary the taste of this one coffee from seemingly light to dark, when it is really just weak to strong controlled by the number of beans I grind for the pot. It is a diverse coffee when serving individuals who do not like medium to dark coffee, I just use less beans and they love it. Anyway, seriously this is my go to coffee, just the BEST for me!
I really love the natural taste and flavor that this coffee has..... I have been using this coffee for about the last 3 years and every cup is stimulating! The service that I receive from Starbucks when I place this order over the internet is excellent and very pleasant.
