MEXICAN AZTEC LIQUIDAMBAR BERILO COFFEE
This world-class coffee is blended from beans grown on the many organic estates in the Soconusco region of the Chiapas Highlands around Motozinta in Mexico. It is not of benefit to farmers with typically small estates to register as an organic grower individually so the coffees are exported by Exportadora de Cafe California a company who specialise in coffee grown to organic standard. The requirements for organic food production do not only ask to maintain the standard but also requires a continuous improvement of ecological aspects within the farms. The farms are found at an altitude between 1,100 and 1,600 metres above sea level where each small producer carefully processes the cherries into parchment with strict quality control by their Cooperative. The Cooperative collects and purchases only the best quality parchment before delivering it to the company's dry mill in Tapachula, Chiapas. The normal harvest season starts in January and ends in April. The total availability depending on the crop cycle and the quality output is around 7,000 export bags with a shipping period from February through May. Cupping notes include dark chocolate, spice, nutmeg, lychee, malt, maraschino cherry, lemon, nuts and molasses.
