Mexican coffee has often been considered mediocre in the coffee industry, and struggled to grab foothold in the specialty coffee market.  There is no reason why this area can’t produce great coffee!  They have all the conditions such as: heirloom coffee varieties, great altitude (1200-1750m), and passionate coffee growers who want to produce high quality micro lots. This cup boasts red grapefruit, tart cherry, and caramel & honey. This coffee is harvested in the buffer zone of El Triunfo Biosphere -- a rare and valuable sanctuary that requires continued protection. Here, all the coffee produced is shade grown.
