organic - Genaro Perez Diaz
strawberry, peach, fruit punch
Our Mexico offering comes from Comon Yaj Noptic (one of the Co-ops in El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve).
This microlot comes from Genaro Perez Diaz. It placed #1 in the "Best of Mexico" cupping competition. Very sweet, juicy, ripe and deep with strawberry, eucalyptus, peach, fruit punch, preserves and red wine. It's also pretty amazing as a single-origin espresso.
The small farms that produce this coffee are located in the buffer zone of El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve. The biosphere is located in the highlands of the Sierra Madre de Chiapas, and is one of the world’s most diverse forest reserves. This reserve contains Mesoamerica’s largest continuous cloud forest, and it serves as a refuge to thousands of plant and animal species. El Triunfo is a rare and valuable sanctuary that requires continued protection. All the coffee they produce is shade grown, and biological corridors are created in order to facilitate bird and animal migration.
