This coffee comes compliments of our friend Tim Hill at Atlantic Coffee. Tim connected me with a few really cool small producers in Oaxaca, Mexico. This coffee is from a small producer group located around the town of San Isidro Paz y Progreso. There are 28 producers in this group, with an average farm size of 2.6Ha. They’re growing a melange of coffee varieties including Typica, Bourbon, Marsellesa, Caturra and Mundo Novo. Their wet milling equipment is primitive, as can be seen by the photo of this coffee, but they’re producing solid, clean coffee with a sweet caramel and chocolate profile.
As always, this green coffee was frozen immediately on arrival in Calgary, to preserve freshness.
