Just outside the remote community of San Vicente Yogondoy, Pompilio Garcia Luna tends to a plot of the traditional coffee variety known as Pluma Hidalgo. This adaptation of the Typica varieties that were amongst the first coffee trees brought to the Americas Blend thrives on the steep slopes and in the lush shade canopy of the rugged Sierra Sur mountain range. Pairing this variety with Pompilio’s meticulous cherry selection and processing results in a prime example of a top quality Oaxacan coffee. We taste notes of nectarine and almond tied together with a honey-like sweetness.

    Found my old notes. A nice chocolatey, earthy coffee. Made good espresso and good pourover but not standout for either.

More Details

Bean Source Country: Mexico
Mexican specialty coffee is marked by its diverse growing regions, rich volcanic soil, and varied microclimates. These coffees often showcase mild acidity, medium body, and a range of flavors, including chocolate, nuts, and subtle fruit notes. Once treated as commodity beans, Mexico's shade-grown Arabica is benefitting from a more nuanced examination of its micro-terrain.
Bean Source Region: Oaxaca
Oaxacan coffee has lush mountains, rugged valleys, and fertile soils with altitudes of up to 2000 MASL. Oaxacan coffee has rich chocolate notes, nutty undertones, and delicate floral nuances, often complemented by subtle smoky or spicy notes.
