New 2018/19 Crop!
This is a farm that holds a special place in our hearts. Gathered around an extinct volcano, Cerro San Juan, a committed group of 260 cooperative coffee farmers are working together to produce arguably the best coffee in Mexico. Terruño Nayarita coffees come from heirloom trees. The word ‘Terruño’ means ‘homestead’. These are farmers that take great pride in their coffee.
San Cristobal Coffee Importers takes great care to find and produce excellent coffee, making sure farmers use safe, sustainable shade techniques and provide a fair wage to the workers. Check out their webpage:
Always one of our favorite Mexican coffees . A little fuller bodied than most years, good sweetness and full of a floral nutty chocolaty tones. A bit lower acidity than previous crops which tends to make it shine at a little fuller roast level. Lighter roasts add some cool floral but risk some underdeveloped notes if way light. Medium to just before 2nd crack and smooth defined and balanced. Darker roasts get edgy and strong, smoky nutty and bakers chocolate tones.
I would shoot for a nice medium roast to right before the second crack – a little bit of a rougher cup into second crack but nice chocolate notes with just a hint of a floral aspect. A bit sweeter and smoother right before the second crack but not quite as hefty of a cup.
