Description

Cafetal el Equimite is a unique productive agricultural organization, with a holistic vision, where the environmental, social, economic and cultural conditions are established to develop a new paradigm around the production of high-altitude and specialty coffee. We create cutting-edge technology promoting conservation, diversification and production under the mesophilic forest of the mountains of Veracruz, within a concept called "edible forest", in the foothills of the Perote chest, in the beautiful magical town of Coatepec. The guiding base of our work is sustainable agriculture, placing a fundamental interest in regenerative management (Biodynamic, organic, integrative and permaculture), generating beautiful productive landscapes to deeply inspire the people who collaborate with us and the communities that surround us to conserve ecosystems for this and subsequent generations. Cafetal El Equimite, is a research center for the comprehensive management of coffee plantations where we permanently monitor nutrition, productivity, tissue management, pest and disease management, harvest and post harvest (fermentation, drying, storage), soil regeneration, seed bank, crop diversification, green manures, establishment of forest and shade trees, compost and chromatography, vermicompost, bioles, biodynamic preparations, management of natural reserves, apiaries, protection of aquifers and biological corridors between areas of protected forests and productive areas for the conservation of flora and fauna. We conserve varieties of high quality Arabica coffee, recovering selected seeds that show genetic resistance thanks to the nutrition that we constantly carry out to the soil and to the plantations. With this, protecting microbiology and life in general so that the agricultural organism can withstand climatic changes and reduce the effects of imbalances, pests and diseases, strengthening the entire ecosystem and at a particular level, deeply nourishing the soils where our coffee trees grow. without compromising our health and that of our plantations with the use of toxic inputs. Our commitment is to offer new information to each coffee plant, starting with the seeds that come from coffee plantations with sustainable management, working on the nutrition of soils with compost, the application of biodynamic preparations, the diversification of productive areas, the maintenance of the native shade trees, pastures for animals and the management of their manures, the establishment of apiaries, so that with pollination it is possible to absorb the integrity, information and complexity of all these factors that will make up a complex cup of Equimite coffee. The subtle information that is organized in our coffee plantation makes the total difference between conventional management and biodynamic management, where the interaction between bees, animals, forests, shade trees and their roots, fruit trees, medicinal plants, flowers, fauna, epiphytes, springs and the will of the human being, generates an exclusive interconnection and vibration that when harvesting the coffee beans we concentrate every subtle aspect in their matter of this beautiful ecosystem, turning each cup into a wonderful sensory experience; we call it “coffee with Qi (Chi)”.
