THE RETURN OF LEYVA MANCILLA ABOVE THE TOWN OF ZIHUATANEJO IN GUERRERO, MEXICO ARE THE SIERRA MADRE DEL SUR MOUNTAINS Back in the 1960's a fisherman by the name of Caesar Galeana Sortiz left the coast in search of better work. He eyed the mountain range behind him - these are the foothills between the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra Madre del Sur Mountains. Sortiz knew that coffee was popular further south in Oaxaca, and saw opportunity to bring coffee home.   Within a few years Caesar and a handful of his neighbors would make the 12 hour hike up to tend to their new fincas, staying up there for weeks at a time, having to make-do with local resources for food,...

Zihuatanejo, Mexico. Coastal Coffee. When people think of coffee from Mexico they think of Veracruz, Chiapas, Oaxaca or Puebla. They do not think of the western state of Guerrero. Those who do think of coffee from Guerrero think of the town of Atoyac, which is where almost all of the state's coffee comes to market. They do not think of the sleepy town of Zihuatanejo five hours north of Acapulco along Mexico's Costa Grande. Yet Zihua (affectionate abbreviation) is now one of my favorite places to go for coffee. In the Spring, and again in July I traveled down to meet with the Grupo de Trabajo Levya Mancilla - a farmer group with 26 members. Their farms overlook the Pacific ocean and beaches of  Zihuatanejo...
