Limited Run: Mexico Veracruz Medium Specialty Roast
Throughout the farm, there is a water re-capture system that's used to re-distribute water to the coffee plants. With a wet mill integrated onto the property, Carlos is focusing on producing specialty coffees, with new developments in fermentation practices over the last few years. Washed coffees are done at the wet mill, whereas naturals are taken to a specific spot which he has found ideal for processing and drying, to ensure a clean, sweet and uniform flavour profile.
There's a focus on the sustainability of the land, with a large commitment to reusing as much of the byproduct of coffee as possible, with cherry pulp going back into compost and other beneficial plants scattered throughout the coffee plants. Here they grow Typica, Garnica, Mundo Novo, and Yellow Caturra, which have been growing on this farm for three generations. Though it's not certified organic, this coffee has never seen commercial composts/fertilizers.
Finca Huehuetepan has participated many times in the Cup of Excellence and achieved 16th place this year with a washed coffee, similar to this one.Cupping Notes Red Grape | Blackberry | Milk Chocolate
