A lovely Reserve Grade washed processed from our good friends at Terruño Nayarita. This is the same crop year as the last batch, very tasty stuff. They have a new crop coming pretty soon but the first runs are all Natural Processed, so we worked with them on a deal for some tasty current crop washed processed at a good deal for all. There is some hope of washed new crop but not until 2021 calendar year.

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 lots, good sweetness and full of a floral nutty chocolaty tones. Lighter roasts add some cool floral but risk some underdeveloped notes if way light. Medium to just before 2nd crack will produce smooth defined and balanced cups. Darker roasts get edgy and strong, smoky nutty and bakers chocolate tones which some will definitely like as well
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.
