    TASTING

    A rich, sweet cup with a pronounced frangipane flavor. This coffee offers a silky sip that leaves a light aftertaste of raisins and dates. Lots of body.

    Another great example of the enormous potential of Mexican terroir: it's textured, sweet, rich and really well made. Fans of classic coffees will enjoy it while encouraging the emergence of specialty coffee production in Mexico.

    ORIGIN

    We continue our exploration of the Mexican terroir, it is our first coffee of Chiapas.

    Cafeco is a relatively new cooperative organization based in Nuevo Progreso, La Concordia, Chiapas, on the edge of the "El Triunfo" biosphere reserve, one of the most important forest reserves in the Americas. Most of Cafeco's members are young farmers who want to produce high quality coffees.

    The cooperative is managed by Jose Arguello Jr, owner of Finca Santa Cruz, which has won first place in the Mexican Cup of Excellence two times in a row. He is focused on developing new quality standards within the cooperative, such as raised bed drying, improved traceability, batch separation, as well as increased productivity. In fact, one of Cafeco's main sources of income is the sale of seedlings from its two large organic nurseries to growers (seedlings are provided at a credited/reduced rate for members of the organization) so that they can continue to renew their plots and farms with fresh plants and new productive varieties. They also manage a composting operation to be able to provide high quality organic compost for distribution to members.

    Maintaining the shade trees in the biosphere reserve is important to the quality of production, and as long as coffee growing is profitable for the farmers in this area, there will be little or no further farming and little or no incentive to cut down the trees for use and profit.

    The Concordia crop was dry fermented for 24-48 hours in concrete tanks before being washed and dried for 8-10 days on hanging beds or terraces.

    DRINKING

    You will enjoy it in espresso and latte, but also in classic filter. A good everyday coffee.
