The Flor de Corazon, also known as the heart flower, thrives exclusively in northern Oaxaca, Mexico. It graces numerous botanical gardens, esteemed for its medicinal attributes believed to alleviate heart ailments and purify the bloodstream. This species benefits coffee plantations, fostering ecosystem diversity by luring bees and granting coffee trees shade. Local coffee growers utilise its petals for infusions in coffee and hot chocolate, contributing aromatic nuances and healthful traits. It is in this magical land where producer group Flor de Corazon grows their coffee, which conservationists say is crucial to the flower's survival.
It's a story of coffee helping nature, helping people, and helping us enjoy delicious brews.
