From the roaster:

Mexican ‘Tenejapa’ {Single Origin Espresso} has the rare characteristic of being a coffee that is both crowd-pleasing and also enjoyable for coffee aficionados. The coffee has flavors of brownie, orange zest, plum, and chai - as well as a juicy and buttery body. It is delicious as espresso and also tasty as brewed coffee using any method. 

Mexican ‘Tenejapa’ {Single Origin Espresso} is produced by multiple small farms located in the state of Chiapas, in southern Mexico. The municipality of Tenejapa has only 40,000 residents and the central city of Tenejapa, only 2,000. The society consists of the indigenous Mayan culture and the common primary language is Tzotzil, an indigenous Mayan language. This culture is so embedded that most people in the area speak Spanish as a second language and even primary schools are conducted in Tzotzil. In terms of cup quality, at the 2023 Cup of Excellence in Mexico, a coffee from Tenejapa placed as #4 out of hundreds of coffees from around Mexico - in fact, we won this #4 COE coffee at auction and it will also be joining our line-up in just a couple of months! Obviously, the amazing people in this remote region are producing some amazing coffee that we are very excited to share with all of you.

I have been a subscriber since their launch, having been introduced to Better Grounds at a coffee festival. I have enjoyed every monthly selection so far! Their service is a great choice for anyone who, like me, wants easier access great quality coffee and anyone who might feel overwhelmed trying to look into the sourcing bonafides of different brands. I appreciate that they do this work for their clients, and also support different roasters who are doing good work.
