Mexico Dana Montana
This organic coffee comes to us from Chiapas, the southernmost state of Mexico, which has a tropical, humid climate year-round. Here, you’ll find the Mayan ruins of Palenque, Yaxchilán, Bonampak, Chinkultic, and Toniná… and the perfect environment for growing high-quality coffee beans.
This particular blend is named after a coffee trader who managed sourcing in Mexico.
She spent many years riding horses in Montana so she earned the nickname of Dana Montana. With her work, and the Movimiento Campesino de Belisario (MOCABE) and the Organización de Cafetaleros la Concordia or CAFECO from La Concordia who produce this coffee, we are able to bring this coffee to you today.
MOCABE started with a small group of farmers in 1999 with the founding principles of being a source of social and environmental improvement. They wanted to offer better coffee prices, provide new opportunities to producers, reduce pollution, and improve the health of coffee farmers and their families.
Today, the group has over 500 member farms and have improve their communities significantly.
Founded in 1995, CAFECO consists of over 260 coffee producers who wanted to produce higher quality coffees. Today, they teach and promote coffee culture throughout the region.
Using a washed processing method, these coffee beans produce a unique combination of pecan, brown sugar, maple, apple, and tangerine flavors.
As an espresso, there is a citrus acidity with apple, maple, brown sugar, and hazelnut.
Graded SHG EP, you’ll savor the bright acidity and smooth, creamy body with just a hint of chocolate.
Now, the producers may change depending on availability throughout the year, but this coffee is harvested between November and March and available in the United States between March and July.
Get ready to transport yourself to the tropical lands of Mexico! You’ll enjoy a vacation from the ordinary as you breathe in the rich aroma and sip this flavorful coffee.
