Monday Morning Cupping – 7/20


Mexican Mixteca Alta de Pacifico – Aroma – Melon like, masked spices. Flavor – a cashew-peanut nutty, dark chocolate, minty hints, light spice. Finish – Medium body, smooth and sweet.

A bit about the coffee: *The Mixtec (or Mixteca) are a Native American people centered in the Oaxaca state of Mexico. “Mixtec” is also the name of their historic language. This strictly hard bean coffee comes from the MIxteca mountain range where it is “mountain grown.” In the area the fair-trade market is directly associated with organic production, dealing with soil conservation and methods of higher yields, which afford the ability to participate in projects aimed at helping over all production.
