Starting at $6.50 / lb
As low as $5.00 / lb

This Fair Trade Organic Mexico is uniquely Oaxacan – sweet with notes of orange-citrus, very clean, good acidity and no traces of any unpleasant, dusty or earthy characteristics that lower quality Mexicans can frequently exhibit. This variety hails from Oaxaca, the southwestern state in Mexico to the west of Chiapas. In 1989, after the Mexican government abandoned the coffee 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 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

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

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.

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!
