Tierra Blanca is a Zapotec indigenous town, located in the southern coastal range between Puerto Escondido and Huatulco.
The cultivation of coffee in this area, and especially for Tierra Blanca, is an agricultural resource with great importance beyond agricultural business. In the region, coffee growing helps maintain a diverse ecosystem by providing a reservoir for rainwater, giving life to the local flora and fauna.
The unique altitude and climate of the Mexican Pacific enhances the quality of the coffee grown in the region, furthering its delicious natural flavor and aroma. Coffees from this region are referred to as having a “Pluma” coffee profile.
