Mexico Altura Decaf
12 oz. bag
Tasting notes: fig, red apple, toffee
Oaxaca is an enigma in many ways but also can produce some of the very best cups in the country. Production here is still overwhelmingly driven by original lines of Bourbon and Typica, including the unique Pluma variety in the southern coastal mountains. With 16 distinct indigenous groups/cultures alone, many of which grow coffee, the region is incredibly diverse from an environmental, climatic, and social perspective. There are many logistical and cost-of-production challenges here. These are vibrant, delicious, sweet coffees that seem to disappear from your cup because they go down so easily. This coffee is an outstanding Swiss Water Process decaffeinated coffee, and makes an excellent cup of coffee or espresso.
