This Fair Trade Organic Mexico is a unique Oaxacan coffee bean – sweet with notes of orange-citrus, very clean, good acidity and no traces of any unpleasant, dusty or earthy characteristics that lower quality Mexican coffee can frequently exhibit. This organic coffee variety hails from Oaxaca, the southwestern state in Mexico to the west of mountainous ranges of Chiapas.

In 1989, after the Mexican government abandoned the coffee industry sector because of budget cuts, the Oaxacan State Coffee Producers Network (CEPCO) was established. CEPCO was able to unite small producers throughout the Oaxacan region and uses the revenue from their Fair Trade sales to provide credit and savings support for its members, promote women’s organization and technical assistance to families, provide life insurance for members and to fund coffee production infrastructure improvements. Currently 90% of CEPCO’s farmers own less than 2 hectares.

Cupping Notes: Very clean, good acid, sweet notes of orange-citrus, slight hints of brown sugar and cocoa

I'm really pleased with this lot of Organic Oaxaca. Really good chocolate flavors which is what I hope to enjoy every morning. I roast to Dark on the Roast Vision scale... perhaps FC+? The earlier lot just wasn't as good but this lot is fantastic!

Roasting it dark. The word smooth just seems to fit here. Excellent.

Delighted with the results! Everything I want in terms of body and chocolate flavor with a dark roast (dropped as 2C was starting). Very pleased with this lot (June 2012?).

Delicious! Love its taste. Roasted it medium. Came out with a hickory taste to it. Made it in a Cortado and Italian Machiatto. Gave beans to some friends who had it as pour over, stovetop espresso and Cappuccino. All loved it. Would definitely buy again.

This bean is delicious! I roast a little past the first crack for a light/medium roast. I haven't tried to go darker with this one, but also haven't felt the need to. Smooth with good body and nutty flavor. Nothing crazy, but its just right :)

It’s ok, not my favorite. Does not roast well past a medium roast.

Roasted up just fine, use it making cowboy coffee (just toss grounds in the pot). Intend to buy more when this runs out. Thanks for the product.

A great coffee I've now added to my rotation of favorite beans. Very good on its own and adds richness and depth when mixed with other beans. Nicely balanced, not as heavy as a Sumatra but more body and chocolatey than Central American beans. Makes a great espresso.

My favorite bean so far! LOVE THIS! I do a medium roast (I'm by no means an expert and only use a Nesco roaster -- don't judge!) and I do an espresso grind for the Moka Pot (Bialetti -- stove-top espresso). This bean does NOT disappoint!! <3

A very nice coffee bean. Yields a smooth cup of espresso. Roasts nice to just past first crack, but does equally well as a dark roast. Highly recommend this bean. This is the 4th time I have ordered this bean.

Probably my favorite being ordered from coffee corral so far! Roasts up very nicely and evenly and has a great smooth flavor.

Tried this bean at medium, medium dark, and just after first crack. A bit milder and nuttier at medium dark, but medium was my sweet spot with this excellent bean. I'm new at roasting but have been hard at it since starting, I drink a LOT of coffee, all day long. This is in the top three of the dozen varieties of beans I have tried so far. Great flavors, especially good when it cools a little in the cup. I will purchase this again.

I home roasted these to my darkness liking. The aroma is fantastic. The finish is quite nice with a little cream and sugar. Will definitely buy from this company again!

I had never tried any beans from Mexico. This one was surprisingly good. Balanced flavor, roasted evenly and I get very good crema out of this one. I will be reordering this one for sure!

I have been buying this coffee for more then 8 years and it is always excellent. I like to mix a fairly light roast with a fairly dark roast. The favor is excellent! This is a great anytime of day coffee.

It has a subtle difference in taste to Chiapas and seems to be more difficult to obtain at a good price. Obviously I enjoy both of the best of Mexican coffees. :one both a a medium roast.

Surprisingly, one of my favorites. Not a connoisseur so I can't get into the wine type critique but it's freakin awesome! 😆

Pushed the roast into the start of carbonization, about two thirds of the way through second crack. This yielded a very good nut like flavor, with sweet after taste. Each cup is like a warm sunny midday in spring. My first ever taste of freshly roasted coffee was in Oaxaca in 1969 and '70. Not this coffee but similar. There was a shop on the Zocalo that roasted the coffee and sold it for eleven pesos per kilo. Best coffee I ever had until I started roasting my own.

Very smooth coffee. I roast it to City (just past first crack) and it is full of flavor with no earth or tea tones.

I always include this coffee in my orders. Very rich tasting and a great coffee for anytime of the day. At a medium roast you can taste dark chocolate and nuts in the finish. I love this coffee!
