Mexican Altura SHG EP

$25.50

Coffee is one of Mexico's most profitable exports. About half a million small farmers and their families rely on the crop for their economic survival. Altura means “heights”. Grown in the rich, volcanic soil high in Mexico’s central and southern mountain ranges, this varietal exemplifies its lofty name. These quality beans brew a smooth, high caliber cup and feature a nutty flavor, often said to resemble the best Guatemalan high grown coffees.

Quality Classifications:

 

  • SHG (Strictly High Grown) specifies that the coffee was grown at an altitude around 1350 meters. Coffee grown at a higher altitude and lower temperature produces a slower maturing fruit and a denser bean; which creates a more desirable specialty cup; this classification is higher than HG. 
  •  EP (European Preparation) specifies that the raw beans are all hand sorted to remove any defective beans and foreign material. Cupping Notes: Sweet, clean finish, nutty, chocolate notes, medium body, soft citrus acidity, stone fruit
