Mexico Finca La Lagunilla Typica
This weeks coffee is from a famous farm from the Zapoteca Community and is situated in the pine and oak forested area of the Juarez Mountain Range, in the South of Mexico, not far away from Tuxtepec.
La Lagunilla is an organization of growers from Ixhuatlan. In 2003 when coffee prices reached an all time low many people abandoned the land in search of something more sustainable.
The remaining 85 people founded the La Lagunilla community. The farmers here are very proud of their 3rd place Cup of Excellence win in 2012 and are so pleased to see how their many years of work has been reflected in this winning lot.
The coffee is picked at 1480 masl and from the Typica family/variety.
We taste chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon spice, florals and a sweet after taste.
