These beans are juicy and velvety and everything you might want in a bean. Steve Sando from Rancho Gordo just flipped for them the first time he tasted them. The beans are from the south side of the Popocatépetl Volcano (which is active, by the way) through Huajuapan, mostly in a dry, arid semi-desert terrain at a high altitude. 

These beans are part of the RANCHO GORDO-XOXOC PROJECT which is to say - These beans are the result of two companies working together to help small farmers and producers continue to grow their indigenous products in Mexico, despite international trade policies that seem to discourage genetic diversity and local food traditions.
