Last year we tried our first coffee from Huatusco and we were incredibly impressed! We snatched this one up as soon as it was available and were so pleased it was as good as last year's harvest. Enjoy the sweet, slightly crisp notes of dark chocolate, red apple and cherry.

Arrival Date: April 13th, 2018

Acidity & Brightness: Moderately bright, slightly crisp

Balance & Finish: Good balance and clean, quick finish

Body & Texture: Medium body and creamy texture

Flavors: Dark chocolate, red apple and cherry

Grade: SHG – Strictly High Grown

Processing: Fully washed

Varietals: Mundo Novo, Garnica, Bourbon, Typica

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. This coffee is a bit less dense than some Central American SHG's, so dial the heat back just a bit for best results.

Recommendation: If you usually put sugar in your coffee, be sure to try this one without first! It's sweet and fruity and downright delicious as a black coffee.

Reminder! This coffee is raw and must be roasted before brewing

Our Review: This single origin coffee comes from the town of Huatusco (waah-twos-ko) in Veracruz, Mexico. The farmers here only grow coffee as their agricultural export, so you can bet they take good coffee seriously. The vast majority of the population is indigenous and many of them don't even speak Spanish, instead opting for one of the many local languages. These fine folks have been working this land for a long, long time and no one knows the soil better.

Last year we were ready to write off coffee from Mexico after several sub-par and disappointing coffees. It took some convincing, but our importer got us to try a coffee from this region and we were pleasantly surprised at how much we loved it! This season continues to impress us. It's got a easy going medium to full body with a creamy texture and quick, clean finish. The flavors are well balanced and quite sweet with notes of dark chocolate, red apple and cherry. Superb as a single origin crowd-pleaser, it also adds significant sweetness and balance to blends.
