We're starting 2023 with a stunning coffee from Mexico, representing the excellent coffee from the dedicated care of smallholder farmer Maria Marcelo. Maria cultivates approximately 12,000 Typica, Bourbon, and Colombia coffee trees, practicing intercropping along with plantains, oranges, and limes. Finca Encino is located in the north of the Mexican state of Guerrero. The character of this coffee is partly defined by the rugged and mountainous forest, cool winds and plentiful rain, and proximity to the Pacific coast, which relieves the tree from hot summer temperatures. Due to this terroir and the abundant trees, Maria produces exceptional coffees, especially given the relatively low elevation.
After carefully harvesting the ripest cherries, they are sorted and sun-dried for two weeks. This coffee showcases intense fruit flavors and acidity. This coffee exhibits initial flavors of blueberry and tamarind, unfolding into warm melon and apricot notes and finishing with a lingering dark chocolate note. All of which are complemented by medium acidity and juicy body.
