“ISMAM San Isidro Labrador” comes from the Sierra Madre region in southern Mexico. This region is characterized by poor infrastructure, unemployment, and a low life expectancy. In response to these adversities, community and church leaders founded the co-operative ISMAM in 1986. All of ISMAM’s coffee is grown at high altitudes ranging from 4800 to 5400 feet. They have been accredited as Shade Grown coffee and Migratory Bird Friendly.
