Tasting notes of cocoa, concord grape, honey and a sweet, light body finish.

This is our second coffee from Monte Alban. This lot is a AA lot, meaning that lots from farms coming in during harvest that score between 84 and 86 points are combined into lots classed as AA. Monte Alban is a 1,000 year old Zapotec ruin in southern Mexico that is surrounded by mountainous coffee farms. One of the earliest Meso-American great urban centers of the classical period, Monte Alban housed the advanced ancient Zapotec culture that made many developments in astronomy, writing, and even medicine. After their mysterious abandonment of the site post 600 AD, the area was used by other groups, including the Mixtec, who recognized the site as spiritually significant. Coffee growers in the region have been producing coffee for more than three generations. We purchased this coffee from Caravela coffee, who is working with farmers to help them certify their farms and add value to their product. This is also a 100% organic certified lot. This is something that some people have been asking us to bring into the roastery.
