This well balanced, medium roast coffee and it’s natural hints of chocolate and cinnamon as much as from A Beautiful Bean Coffee Co is amazing!
While Mexico is not necessarily known for their coffees, they are one of the largest producers of organic coffee in the world. When you do begin to look for the highest quality coffee beans in Mexico, you will find they generally come from the Chiapas and Oaxaca regions, which is why that is where A Beautiful Bean sources their coffee beans from. The forested mountains of the Chiapas and Oaxaca regions with their rich volcanic soils are perfect conditions for Arabica plants to thrive. Coffee produced from this region is called Altura, which means “high grown”. When it comes to coffee production, higher elevations generally means better beans. This is important because the cooler temperatures and less oxygen causes the plants to grow more slowly which produces a more dense, richer bean with more concentrated flavors. Mexican Altura coffee beans are considered to be very high quality and are among the finest grown Mexico. They tend to produce a medium bodied coffee with mild flavor and a pleasant acidic snap. After harvesting, these coffee beans are meticulously hand sorted, fully washed, then dried in the sun or in mechanical driers. You’ll be able to taste the care taken to make sure you receive only the highest quality coffee beans that Mexico has to offer.
