The Argüello Enriquez family are the owners of Finca Santa Cruz, next to the Triunfo Biosphere Reserve. "8 years ago we began to produce specialty coffee, based on selective cutting, fermentation and storage protocols. To replicate processes every year we measure time, temperature, brix degrees and phase, in this way we produce coffees of consistent quality". Karina Arguello Enriquez studied international business and has been dedicated to coffee since 2009. "On the farm I do the export part when the client requests it, because we have a % of sales for both export and national sales. We are currently structuring the farm to be able to grow both in quality and in sales. And we opened a roaster in Tuxtla Gutiérrez where we also have sales to the final consumer, offering courses and workshops to open a specialty market first in Tuxtla and with that to be able to advance in this industry in Chiapas, although we are the largest producers as a state, we do not have the culture of being able to drink good coffee. But much progress is already being made". Karina, sister of José Argüello Enriquez producer concerned with producing specialty coffees and demonstrating that high-quality cup coffees are produced in Mexico and that they can compete with the best coffees in the world. In 2018, a protocol was carried out to produce the Gesha variety in Natural Process. In 2019, the producer family replicated the protocols and participated in the Cup of Excellence Contest, obtaining 1st place with a score of 93.07 points in the cup, the results were satisfactory. In 2021 they obtained 1st place again with a score of 91.58 points, currently in 2022 they were winners of 1st place again with a score of 93 points, being the first coffee farm to win this competition three times in a row. With this, Finca Santa Cruz is denoting the consistency of the coffee it produces, that quality is not the work of luck, that it continues and will continue to produce one of the best coffees in Mexico. The coffee farm is shaded by trees such as Chalum (Ingra vera), they make selective cuts, only of ripe cherries and process naturally, controlling parameters. Drying is done on raised beds. The coffee is stored in hermetic bags in a suitable storage place. Quality control staff constantly perform quality assessments. "Important people to mention, my father, my mother, Pepe his family, Jorge Hernandez (Q cupper and roaster) workers in the field that without everyone's help as a team we could not have made what has been achieved so far possible.
