Why You'll Love It: The effects of high altitudes give this coffee bright notes of rose and kiwi that we never imagined possible in a Mexican coffee.
Story of the Bean: Heirloom variety Typica plants grow high on the western slopes of the Sierra Madre del Sur mountain range. Their intense floral aromas are due to the high altitudes and cold evening temperatures they endure. Colder nights cause the plant to naturally send more sugar to its cherries in order to protect the seeds, resulting in a sweeter and more floral cup of coffee.
This lot was produced by the SICOBI cooperative, which has over 200 producing members. This year's harvest is even better than the last and we are proud to offer this expectation-shattering Mexican coffee again.
