IThis coffe is strictly High Grown (SHG) by 3rd generation farmers, Delmar and Fernando Moreno Guillen, on their family estate high up in the Chiapas mountains. The farm utilizes a significant amount of natural shade trees, and while not certified organic, it is naturally grown and processed without chemical fertilizers. The varietals are mostly Typica and Bourbon, but there are a few Caturra trees still producing in some areas of the farm.
This is one of the most versatile coffees around; it can be roasted across the spectrum, blended, or enjoyed as solo cup or single origin espresso. The beans are relatively softer than other high grown centrals and develop a bit faster in the roast, coming out looking nice and big.
Chiapas is the southernmost region in Mexico, sharing a border with Guatemala to the west, and Oaxaca to the east. It is well suited to produce an almost “Guatemala-esque” profile; medium body, medium acidity (although not as much as a Guatemala Huehuetenango), a nice nuttiness and a hint of spice.
The mountainous highlands of Chiapas provide an ideal climate in terms of temperature and humidity for arabica cultivation; it’s also home to some breathtaking vistas and numerous ancient Mayan archeological sites.

A WORD about roast styles, We roast our coffee a touch lighter than other shops in town and are currently offering City (light), Full City (medium), and Vienna (dark). We do not roast the same coffee several ways. The roaster picks a profile for a particular regions and tries to stick with it.
All our Coffee is roasted on a Diedrich IR-12 with the automation and most of our coffees are meticulously saved in the profiles the roaster has chosen.
