Chiapas is an increasingly solid growing region in Mexico, and this Alturra, grown in volcanic soil near the Guatemala border, is expressive of is terrain, with gentle acidity and a velvety-smooth body. On the nose, dark chocolate, almond butter, and date tones are supported by a rich aromatic wood note akin to fresh-cut cedar, an important element in this coffee’s structure. Delicate floral notes surface in the finish, while chocolate persists into the long.
About the Coffee
Altura Superior Chiapas Strictly High Grown (SHG) is a regional blend from one of Mexico's largest and oldest coffee-producing areas, with some farms dating back a century.
Chiapas benefits from the humidity of the Pacific to the west and the Gulf of Mexico to the east. Combined with the slopes of the Sierra Madres, which divide the state and reach up to 1,600 meters near the border with Guatemala, countless microclimates are created, cultivating a distinctive cup quality.
Coffees in Chiapas are generally produced by smallholders, usually in association with cooperatives. Most producers hand-pulp their coffees, ferment the beans in small tanks and rake and dry them on small patios on their properties.
Expect a full bodied coffee, spicy acidity, round cup with dried-fruit sweetness. Dark chocolate and aromas nut butter, create an exceptional coffee.
