The town of Motozintla - from the Tzotzil language meaning ‘Squirrell's Hill’ - is located in the Sierra Mariscal region of Chiapas. This mountainous area borders Guatemala and shares its healthy and distinctive volcanic soil. As a result, a lot of similarities can be found in the taste profiles of coffees from both Guatemala and Mexico grown along this border. There is a range of microclimates in the area including warm, humid and temperate and the surrounding area is El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve which is an oak-pine cloud forest reserve filled with 800+ plant and 390+ bird species.
Something very interesting about this coffee is that each smallholder producer utilizes organic practices and is responsible for the entire processing of his/her own microlot - from the planting and growing, depulping the cherries on hand crank machines, fermenting in tanks, washing, and drying on roofs or patios. This would usually raise concerns for inconsistency yet this lot is one of the cleanest and sweetest coffees we have tasted from Mexico in a long time. Each smallholder works diligently to keep their growing and processing practices to a high standard and the results show in the cup. A creamy body with notes of dark chocolate with hints of dried cherries and caramel - this coffee is definitely a crowd pleasure so please enjoy!
