Oaxaca, Mexico is quickly establishing a reputation for more than its incredible cuisine and natural beauty, but also for its specialty coffee production. We are absolutely loving the coffee we’re tasting from this region. This particular lot is from local producers in San Pedro Sochiapam, a small town located in the mountainous region north of Oaxaca. Like many communities in Oaxaca, San Pedro Sochiapam has a strong remaining presence of the Zapotec culture—an indigenous pre-Columbian civilization that flourished in the Valley of Oaxaca at least 2,500 years ago. The Zapotec people have a unique language, which is still spoken by many of the local residents alongside Spanish to this day. Around 115 locals contribute to the coffee production of this town alongside other crops like corn, beans, and various fruits.
Like many smallholders we work with, these farms are not fields of rows cultivated by tractors, but instead grown on the side of mountains under the cover of trees. In these environments everything is done by hand including harvesting. Ripe cherries are hand picked, depulped on the following day, and left to ferment overnight. They then go through a process called floating where the beans are placed in water and anything that floats is removed, leaving only the cherries of the highest density. Once fully washed, the beans are left to dry on roofs or sun patio until they are ready for export.
We roast to order and ship Monday-Thursday. Orders are usually fulfilled the production day after they are placed (for example, orders placed on Monday will ship on Tuesday). Orders placed Thursday-Sunday will be fulfilled and shipped on Monday.
By you? Yes. By us, sadly, no. Currently, we can only ship whole-bean coffee.
Freshness is critical to fully enjoying coffee. We roast to order to ensure your coffee is at peak freshness when it arrives. Sometimes our shipping partners experience delays due to weather, heightened demand, technical issues, pandemics, or aliens. All of which is out of our hands, except the aliens, but that's not for here.
If your package is delayed, let us know and we'll track it down and escalate its delivery. If it's delayed more than 2 weeks past the shipment date, and your order includes coffee, we'll either refund your money or ship you fresh coffee at no cost.
We roast our coffee and select our teas to express the life it lived and to honor the skilled people who cultivate it. We’re passionate about sourcing, creating, and discovering products to elevate everyday life while strengthening connections and community.
