A great certified up the wazoo co-op produced Mexican coffee. Whenever I am talking to older coffee drinkers they really seem to have a bad taste for Mexican coffee. Most who remember Mexican coffee 20+ years ago tend to shy away from it. Mexican coffee as a whole has come a very long way over the last 15 years and has been producing awesome cleaner lots well-deserving of a 2nd chance.
Tasting Notes: A great daily drinker! Very nice and chocolaty cup of coffee. A nice clean lemony crispness upfront at the light to medium roasts especially as the cup cools. A little underdeveloped tasting at light roasts (cinnamon to city), really starts coming together around the medium roast points (city+ to full city) and is a very nice dark roast candidate for those who love some complimenting roasty notes. Assuming you roast it a little closer to 2nd crack it will develop a medium body and far reduced acidity but doesn’t loose its sweeter edge. A couple pops into 2nd crack produced still very clear and smooth chocolaty tones without adding over the top roasty notes.
Roasting Notes: An easy coffee to roast. Medium chaff, nice screen of coffee and pretty even roasting. This cup will mostly appeal to medium and dark roast fans. A little longer setup helps smooth out a bit of acidity if you roast it a bit too light for your preference.

I really liked this Mexican coffee. Some types of the Mexican I don’t care for but this one… GOOD.
Sorry to see it is not available anymore.
