Coffee Tasting Notes
This coffee features the classic notes of high quality coffee grown in Chiapas. Milk chocolate, caramel, and turbinado sugar are prominent notes throughout the cup. Hints of red fruit and warm spices such as nutmeg and clove are present in the latter portion of this well-balanced organic coffee.
About The Coffee Producer
This coffee was produced by the 501 farmers that compose the Movimiento Campesino de Delisario Social Solidarity Society. A social solidarity society is an official distinction in Mexico and comes with commitments to improve ecological and social welfare. The group achieves this by pooling resources to access better credit lines, garner higher prices for their coffee, and train farmers in the employment of organic practices and certification.
The cooperative has been certified organic for nearly two decades which lowers input costs into their coffee crop while increasing the value of their crop. The cooperative was able to pool resources collected over the years to build a coffee warehouse, office, and processing facility that enables the cooperative to function without the numerous intermediaries that would otherwise take significant portions of the value of the coffee crop.
This lot is composed of fine quality coffee varieties and is prepared to the highest standard of coffee quality.
