SPECIALTY COFFEE, FROM JALISCO

CAFÉ DON BALBINO

We take the greatest care in every process, from cultivation to roasting, to produce high-quality coffee beans. The result is a perfectly balanced coffee, completely natural and organic that delights the most demanding palates with its exquisite notes of chocolate and hazelnut, vanilla and maple syrup.
Our Mission

To offer the world extraordinary quality coffee, produced with passion and dedication since its cultivation, backed by more than 60 years of Don Balbino’s experience.
Our Vision
To be the standard-bearer of the Mexican coffee in the world, progress coffee culture and improve the quality of life of Mexican coffee growers, particularly those from Jalisco.

Our Processes

1.

Cultivation

Cultivation of coffee trees under the shade of native trees allows beans to develop slowly and to ripen uniformly.

2.

Harvesting

The harvest is done by hand, picking only ripe fruits.

3.

Ecological wet process

We use an ecological wet process with water from springs and streams that run through the coffee plantations.

4.

Drying

Drying is done in patios where the coffee beans are exposed to sunlight.

5.

Selection

Coffee beans are selected by weight and size with modern machinery, then selected by hand, one by one, through an artisanal method.

6.

Roasting

The roasting process is also artisanal. We carefully control the temperature to achieve the perfect roasting point. Then the coffee beans are cooled to avoid alterations.

7.

Packing

Finally, packing is made under strict safety and hygiene measures to guarantee a high-quality product.

Don Balbino Ramírez

Mr. Balbino Ramírez Flores was born in the state of Oaxaca, in the Mixteca region. He began his journey through the world of coffee more than six decades ago. In 1959, he arrived to the state of Jalisco to share his knowledge with the emerging coffee producers from the Sierra Madre Occidental, in the Municipality of Talpa de Allende. Working together with regional coffee farmers, Don Balbino contributed enormously to the improvement of their plantations.  He introduced the wet and dry processing techniques, as well as the roasting process. He also created several Cooperative Societies and Producers Unions which had a very positive impact on the quality of life of coffee growers.

With a vast career, Don Balbino has designed and executed projects that have positioned the Mexican coffee in the world scene.

Indisputably, Don Balbino is one of the most important personalities in the coffee industry in Jalisco. Due to his dedication, passion and service vocation, with admiration and respect he’s called ‘Coffee Master and Friend”.

The Coffee Cathedral

The Coffee Cathedral exists due to the efforts of hundreds of Mexican coffee farmers, the vision, generosity and hard work of Don Balbino and his family, and the endurance and passion of the workforce who put their all into this project.

The materials used to build the Cathedral are entirely from the region. Likewise, only local workers collaborated in its edification.

International finalist of the World Architecture Festival 2016 in the Sustainable Building category. The project responds to five main premises, and it is through them that the Coffee Cathedral formally arises:
1

Accommodate the dry coffee processing activities (selection, classification, roasting and packing).

2

Reflect Café Don Balbino’s commitment with quality and local coffee production.

3

Inspire coffee growers in the area to produce high quality coffee.

4

Extol the Mexican workforce.

5

Welcome coffee tourism to the area of Jalisco.
