Comala Suchitlan Coffee
It's CAFE in the mountains behind Colima
Cofradia de Suchitlan, Colima - Mexico
 

The area above Comala is not only a beautifully scenic area with views of the Colima Volcano but it's also coffee country. Cofradia de Suchitlan is the town with the coffee processing plant (Colimotl Cafe) but the coffee grows from there up to Lago Maria and on to La Yerba Buena.  Because Yerba Buena is so close to the volcano the government ordered relocation of the town 3-4 years ago but many have resisted and still maintain their residences and farming.  Yerba Buena used to process it's own coffee but now only sells to the larger processors like Colimotl and Comalteco.

We stopped at the Colimotl processing plant Cofradia de Suchitlan (across from the bull ring) to see what's up - and got a nice tour.  Sadly they only roast for cafe Americano which is medium and you can't request a dark roast
