Various regions of Jalisco have their own quality high altitude coffees  (above 900 meters above sea level) and their production takes place in suitable micro-climates; this can be enforced to achieve certification of organic food, which will open niche markets that value this feature at a premium above the conventional product.

The CEO of agricultural development of the Ministry of Rural Development of Jalisco, Mario Ramos Velasco, said it is a strategic objective Jalisciense positioning coffee as organic and gourmet, since the smaller coffee production can not compete by volume, as the regular coffee product have large tracts of coffee, in Chiapas, Veracruz, Puebla and Oaxaca.

According to a statement from La SEDER, Jalisco contributes 0.3 percent of coffee production in the country with plantations on 3,000,800 hectares and with a roster of 100 thousand producers; production is 8400 tonnes.
