Cupping Notes: Creamy, Chocolate, and slightly Nutty
From the high mountains west of Vera Cruz Mexico comes a delicious coffee that is decaffeinated through the “natural” process, and roasted dark well into the second crack, and dumped when tiny specks of oil appear on the bean.
This is a fully flavorful coffee that has often been selected as one of our best dark roasted coffees in our periodic coffee tastings.
Photo: Laura Bagby is one of the few Americans and Europeans who speak the Miskito language. She learned Miskito while living in the village of Auka Honduras, were only two others spoke English. The students of Project Ezra often light up when Laura visits a school, because they love talking to a "Meriki" in their own language. Laura is 100% Japanese, born in Japan, but to many of her friends on Maui, she is known as "La Mexicana", and name given to her years ago by our friend Craig Englert. That is why we selected her to grace the label of our Mexican Esmeralda.
