The Captain's Coffee
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 milk chocolate, orange and cherry.

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 milk chocolate, orange, nectarine and cherry. Superb as a single origin crowd-pleaser, it also adds significant sweetness and balance to blends.
