The municipality of Cosautlán is located in the central mountainous area of the state, with flatlands and deep canyons as the defining topographic features. The town of Cosautlán was a Totonac town and its name comes from the Nahuatl Kosauh-tlan which means "golden place." The main source of income for the population is agriculture, with coffee as the primary crop. The coffee farms are very close to the city, making transportation quick and easy.
Every February 2, the religious festival of the Virgin of Candelaria, the patron saint of the town, is celebrated. In this iconic area where tradition and ancestral knowledge coexist with new modernization trends, the natural result is a coffee of exceptional quality.
