En este trabajo, se presentan los derivados climáticos como un instrumento que permite al sector agrícola en México cubrirse ante los riesgos relacionados con el clima. Se realiza un análisis de la factibilidad de un derivado climático para el cultivo del café en los estados de Veracruz, Chiapas y Oaxaca con el fin de transferir los riesgos asociados con el clima. Así se determina, mediante el método de panel de datos, que la precipitación tiene una relación elástica de 1.99 con la producción anual del café. Partiendo de este argumento, se desarrolla en el presente trabajo una valuación de opciones europeas sobre precipitación para el café con el método de Black-Scholes (1973), para los estados estudiados.
