We don’t typically think of Mexico when we’re pursuing new coffees for our offering list, but when we came across this coffee from Dos Rios we were super impressed with its clarity and pronounced acidity. It is always an exciting experience to be able to work with coffees we are unfamiliar with and to learn how to best roast and brew them.
Uncommon for Mexico, this coffee is grown at upwards of 1700 masl which allows the Typica and Bourbon varieties to really shine. This coffee yields a super clean, sweet, and mellow cup with notes of almond and lemon.
The Hernandez family grows coffee on a total of fewer than 3 hectares, in Puebla. The elevation here is higher than is generally seen in Mexico, and is ideal for heirloom varieties like Typica and Bourbon. The family delivers their coffee directly to the beneficio or mill in cherry form.
