Guadalupe Miramar :: Mexico
San Pedro Yosotatu community is a sub group of about 20-30 farmers that are mostly all women, and led by a woman named Madelina Lopez. The mountainous coffee growing area in Yucuhiti is one of the highest altitude growing regions in the state starting around 1450 masl and topping out around 1900 masl. The pure Bourbon and Typica varieties, gown under a thick shade canopy, are meticulously selected at optimum ripeness during peak harvest in January and February, floated, and carefully de-pulped, then fermented over night without water for up to 24 hours. Each producer’s parchment lot is kept separated over the course of the harvest and sent in for pre-screening on moisture content, water activity, and cup quality at least 3 times before being bulked into community lots. A major initiative being led by the co-op is replanting of top quality varieties and maintaining nurseries in select areas around the community and distributing seedlings to members.
We are very proud to feature this coffee in our line-up and hope you enjoy this fantastically sweet coffee!
