Zoquiápam is surrounded by mountains and hills where oaks, poplars and plum trees grow providing excellent shade to coffee trees. Currently coffee production here is at 200 tons annually, this is very little compared to what was harvested years ago. Growers say that production decreased due to a lack of support and resources. Characteristic of this village is the communal unity.
