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.

Recipe for great coffee

  1. Use cold, filtered water and a clean machine.
  2. Grind beans just before brewing:
    • Coarse for coffee press
    • Medium for automatic drip
  3. Measure 2 tbsp (10 g) ground coffee for every 6 fl oz (180 ml) water.

To help preserve that fresh flavor, keep this bag sealed tight in a cabinet (not in the refrigerator) and brew within a week of opening.

Each coffee requires slightly different amounts of time and temperature during the roasting process to create a cup at its peak of aroma, acidity, body and flavor. We classify our coffees in three roast profiles so you can easily find your desired flavor and intensity.

  • Blonde: Blonde-roasted coffees have a shorter roast time, lighter body and mellow flavors.
  • Medium: Medium-roasted coffees are balanced with smooth and rich flavors.
  • Dark: Dark-roasted coffees feature a fuller body and robust, bold flavors.

Looking for the Best Taste

By N8McCo

from Escondido, CA, USA

Comments about Starbucks Organic Shade Grown Mexico:

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!

A Hidden Gem

By Jrkeur

Comments about Starbucks Organic Shade Grown Mexico:

I accidentally came across this online and have never seen it before.
I decided to buy it to see how it was and what not. I was blown away with how smooth it was and how unique the flavor was. Definitely a must try.

So good! I hope Starbucks starts carrying it again.

By ninjacoughdrop

from Norman, OK, USA

Comments about Starbucks Organic Shade Grown Mexico:

Incredibly smooth, tastes great no matter what method you use to brew it. I used to drive around to every Starbucks in town to buy this coffee. Then, once it was only available online, I would order multiple bags at once since my husband, friends, and I could drink it by the gallon. I hope Starbucks starts carrying this coffee again soon!

Comments about Starbucks Organic Shade Grown Mexico:

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!

Shade Grown Mexican

By civet22

from New York

Comments about Starbucks Organic Shade Grown Mexico:

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...

Comments about Starbucks Organic Shade Grown Mexico:

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.
