Mexico Rancho San Fransisco
Cupping Notes: Medium body, medium acidity, smoky with almond nuttiness and slight hints of peach.
Background: Our Mexico Rancho San Francisco is Strictly High Grown (SHG) by third generation farmers, Delmar and Fernando Moreno Guillen on their family estate in the mountains of Chiapas. The farm utilizes a significant amount of natural shade trees, and while not certified organic, it is naturally grown and processed without chemical fertilizers. Our Mexico Rancho San Francisco is comprised of mostly Typica and Bourbon varieties, but there are a few Caturra trees still producing in some areas of the farm.
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 oaky, nuttiness and a hint of spice. Mexico as a whole is the world’s 8th largest producer of coffee, with the majority of production occurring in Chiapas and Oaxaca.
