Tasting Notes: Jasmine, Apple Pie, Fudge
Roast level: Light
Region: La Concordia, Chiapas
Farmer: Multiple small producers
From the roaster: Mexican 'Flor de Primavera' will delight you with flavor notes of apple pie, pomegranate, cinnamon, orange hard candy, and fudge - along with the fragrance of jasmine. This coffee hits all the spots, from chocolatey, to fruity, to floral and is syrupy in body. It truly is a treat.
This coffee is produced by a group of farmers in Chiapas, the most southern state of Mexico, bordering Guatemala. The landscape here is lush, with a combination of rainforest and pine forest, and lends itself naturally to organic farming practices. These farmers not only work together to make sure they have a positive environmental impact, protecting the forests around them, but also focus on cultivating a high quality coffee by having a forward thinking and innovative approach.
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.
