Twelve of Mexico’s 31 states grow coffee, and the most productive among them is Chiapas. Visitors can learn more about the characteristics of Chiapan coffee at Argovia, one of the oldest coffee plantations in the state. In addition to growing beans that yield delicious coffee, Argovia staff nurtures more than 125 native plants and flowers, most of which are visible on an estate tour. A visit also includes a traditional lunch with local treats like tortilla soup.
