Mexico is something of an “awakening giant” in the world of coffee and there are now so many coffees coming from the country for lovers of the drink to discover.

The main coffee-producing regions are Veracruz, Chiapas and Oaxaca and these are the states that grow Mexico’s best coffee, especially the latter two.

Much of the coffee in Veracruz is grown at relatively low altitudes but some coffees grown there at higher altitudes are well-regarded. Many coffees from Oaxaca are highly sought-after and the coffees grown at high altitudes in Chiapas are often considered the country’s very best.

Coffee that is classed as “Altura” are beans that have been grown at high altitude. When beans are grown at higher altitudes, they take longer to ripen and so have time to develop a fuller flavor. High altitude crops are lower yield but fetch higher prices at auction.

For this reason, Altura beans are the most highly prized of Mexican beans.

In general, Mexican coffee is characterized as having a delicate body, a tart acidity and a dry finish. Many “standard” Mexican coffees also show hints of nuts and chocolate. As a rule, Oaxacan coffee is similar to coffee from Chiapas but with a milder flavor.

However, with the rise of Mexican specialty coffees, there are many more interesting and complex flavor profiles waiting to be discovered. Some of the best Mexican coffees display notes of chocolate, toffee, vanilla, citrus and other fruits.

As we mentioned, Mexico is a major grower of organic coffee, now accounting for around 60% of world production. This means if you prefer organic products, Mexican coffee is also an excellent choice.

For the most part, Mexican coffee is processed using the “wet” method.

Fresh Roasted Coffee

The Fresh Roasted Coffee process begins at the source. Our coffees are chosen and established with great love and greater yet - consideration of origin, flavour profile and quality. All of these components help us to deliver consistent, exceptional coffee with true approachability.

Coffee Storage

Coffee has four age old enemies; heat, light, air and moisture. The way coffee is stored is essential to keeping it fresh and ready to enjoy. Storing coffee in conditions that expose it to these elements will allow for the coffee to lose its. flavour rapidly. Coffee should be stored in an airtight container. We suggest either a glass, metal or ceramic version. Coffee should not be stored in the freezer, contrary to popular belief, as it leads to moisture extracting the flavour of the coffee. Coffee beans are porous and will also absorb unwanted flavours from your freezer.
