First new crop Terruno Nayarita arrival! A bit different from last years Natural processed. A bit less fruity and not quite as wild in its tones. Very clean, bigger bodied and a bit stronger cup. Super clean natural processes brings it more similar to the washed profile than last season.

This is a co-op that holds a special place in our hearts. This coffee is from 100% traceable, directly traded micro-lots. Each bag is uniquely identified with a bar code and a serial number. 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. This is the top screen-size/grade from the Terruño Nayarita Co-op.
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:
A cool cup of Mexican coffee with unique (to Mexico) processing that leaves it far from the normal Mexican cup profile. Nice and sweet upfront with fruity aromatics. Bakers chocolate, malt, smoke and a bit of nuttiness comprise the darker tones of the cup. Very dependent on roast, lighter roasts will be filled with more citric floral notes and a nutty dry chocolate undertone, medium roasts are balanced and bring out some hints of darker chocolate with the acidity and floral tones greatly muted, darker roasts pick up an almost barrel aged tones like you would find in beer or scotch and turn a bit smoky.
A nice full city roast we thought to be the best. Works very nicely at the city to full city roasts level. Way dark tends to get a pretty funky twinge, might recommend the Washed Processed for into 2nd crack roasts.
