New Coffee Feature: FTO Mexico Santa Cruz

Hello coffee lovers!

Here is our 3rd post about our new coffees. Today we're talking about the Fair Trade Organic Mexico Union Ramal Santa Cruz. (Quite a mouthful, isn't it?)

The Beans:
This Fair Trade Organic coffee comes from the town Ramal Santa Cruz, in the Chiapas region of Mexico. 

It is Strictly High Grown, meaning it’s cultivated above 1200 meters. High altitude coffee beans are hard and dense, generally producing a better cup of coffee. Like all of our beans, these are Arabica. The coffee "cherries" are processed with the Washed method. They are also hand sorted after their initial grading, a method known as Euro Prep. 

The Taste:
From our cupping notes: features a sweet almond scent, followed by sweet dark chocolate, tart wine-like flavors and a mellow aftertaste. Medium body.  

From Olam's (our green coffee importer) cupping notes: nice body, big dark chocolate, sweet.

Featured in:
Safari Blend, Tempest Blend, Organic Odyssey Espresso Blend
