Mexico produces quite a range of coffees across it’s regions, from lighter-bodied, delicate coffees through to sweeter coffees with caramel, toffee or chocolate flavours in the cup.
Mexico sells a great deal of it’s coffee to the United States, so it’s relatively rare to find excellent examples of Mexican coffee elsewhere in the world**
This is washed coffee from Chiapas is the first Mexican we’ve had and we’re particularly excited about it.
It’s quite mild and mellow coffee with a light body.
