The Captain's Coffee
This tiny coop in the mountains of Northern Chiapas produces only one container of coffee each harvest so we feel very fortunate to get to try such a rare coffee! Drinkable, slightly complex and full of notes of cocoa powder and cherry, this coffee is great for those who enjoy milk and sugar as it will cut right through.
Arrival Date: August 21st, 2017
Acidity & Brightness: Moderately bright, not overly bright or sweet.
Balance & Finish: Slightly complex, lingering chocolate-y finish

Flavors: Cocoa powder, cherry, slightly earthy tone
Certifications: Organic & Fair Trade
Grade: H/G - High Grown - 1,460 masl

Roasting: We like this coffee best right at Full City (medium). Feel free to take it a bit darker into Full City + if you're looking for a bit more body, though you may lose some of the sweetness and creamy texture. As this is an H/G instead of the usual SHG, take it a little easier on your heat settings as the bean is a bit less dense!
Recommendation: This coffee is just a great, all around, everybody coffee. The intensity of the flavors cut through milk and sugar well!
Reminder! This coffee is raw and must be roasted before brewing
Our Review: This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Cooperativa de produccion Tzeltal-Tzotzil, an organization operating in the northern part of Chiapas, Mexico. Exceptional care is taken by producers to depulp, ferment and dry their coffee, which is aided by the use of farm-owned micro mills. Coffee farms from this organization tend to be less than ten acres in size, and produce honey as well as coffee. Farm owners and producers have focused on organic production methods to protect the
environment, increase overall quality, and gain higher income to improve the livelihood of their families. This small coop only produces one container of coffee each harvest so we feel incredibly fortunate to get to try it!
It can be difficult to describe coffees sometimes as there are times when you just want to say "yeah that's just some good coffee!" Not overly sweet, crisp, balanced or big, this coffee shines in that it's kind of a jack of all trades! Maybe the best way to describe it is to call it gourmet diner coffee. You know, rich and warm, cuts through milk and sugar well and goes great with a big stack of pancakes. The most overwhelming flavors we noticed were cocoa powder and cherry with a slightly complex earthiness. Don't forget the maple syrup!
