This coffee comes to you from Oaxaca, Mexico—an enigmatic region in many ways, but which also produces some of the very best cups in the country. This particular lot is a community effort with local farmers contributing their crops to produce larger lots to sell at better prices. But what's "especial" about this one is the coffee that was graded the highest quality was separated into its own lot, producing Ozolotepec Especial #2.
Our importing partner, Red Fox, has invested an enormous effort in Oaxaca navigating the region's complexities including assisting farmers with financing, building supply chain from the farm level, and selecting and vetting for quality, and not just in the cup. All coffee passes through strict moisture content and water activity parameters as well. Farmer’s are also paid a minimum price that far exceeds the rate that these farmers receive through traditional channels. A lot of effort has gone into getting this coffee to you, and we hope it causes you to savor it just a bit more. It’s truly a special thing.

This was a solid and approachable Mexico. Super sweet, tons of caramel, roasted nuts, amazing body. Surprised at the price, hope the farmer got a sweet payday from it. No peach flavors at all, even after speaking the word gently to the slurry while brewing, but what can ya do ♂️ I’d buy it again.
Fabulous Been waiting for more Mexico blends Sweet and mild - makes an ideal blend Great roasting job
