Mexico’s history with coffee is quite tumultuous. Without going too far into detail, it is more than apparent that farmers in Mexico have overcome great odds to produce high-quality specialty coffee. In recent years there’s been a resurgence of interest in Mexican coffee, specifically in the state of Oaxaca, the origin of San Agustin Loxicha. The variety of coffee growing in this region is a Typica-hybrid called “Pluma,” named after the city San Hidalgo Pluma where the variety was first discovered. Typica originated in Ethiopia and Yemen and is known for its distinct and coveted flavors. Despite being genetically removed a step or two, this coffee bursts of stunning flavors found in traditional Typica lots. Our roaster described San Agustin Loxicha as “the quintessential every-day drinking coffee,” and we can’t help but agree. This coffee offers approachable and balanced flavors of shortbread cookie and rich dark chocolate that’ll leave you in a state of pure bliss. Whether you’re a fan of crazy-funky flavors or you prefer something more predictable, this Mexican coffee is sure to impress.
