A Veracruz community lot
The warmth of classic flavors in every cup
The growing region of Coatepec is located in the state of Veracruz on the Gulf Mexico coast, where coffee cultivation dates back to the 1700s. As you move inland toward the Sierra Nevada (the active volcano belt in the Sierra Madre mountain range) the elevation increases, and the climate becomes ideal for producing coffee. Coatepec is the biggest region in this coffee-growing locality and is often referred to as "the coffee capital of Mexico," with most of the region still growing traditional varietals: Caturra, Typica, and Bourbon.
The town itself has a rich colonial past earning the distinction of being named a historical heritage site and a "Pueblo Magic" city. Most producers in this area have on average 4 hectares of land. They deliver their ripe, freshly harvested coffee cherries to the local mill for processing and quality sorting. Coatepec coffees are famously known for their mild acidity, smooth milk chocolate body, and caramel-like sweetness.
This coffee represents comfort in every cup. Dial-into brownie batter and buttery, hazelnut by starting with a 1:16 brew ratio, filtered water at 206-208℉, a medium grind, and a 3-3.5-minute brew cycle.
