Mexican Finca La Estanzuela is one of the coffees that has joined our selection of qualified coffee for the 2022-2023 season. I haven't had a Mexican coffee outside of my 2022 election taste since I drank a Mexican coffee in Tim Wendelboe's selection not too long ago. For this reason, I was also excited to have Mexican coffees on the tasting table, because I would not have any positive or negative prejudices during the tasting. As a matter of fact, even if I had tasted this coffee with a negative prejudice, it would definitely be a coffee in our selection! The reason was that it met the taste score in performance and was very well positioned in price according to its performance.

In 2018, the Martinez family began renovating the farm in an effort to revive the natural fertility of the soil. They began using organic fertilizers and compost to feed the soil, and began planting varieties with Coffee Leaf Rust disease (CLR) resistance. This batch consists of Sarchimor, a CLR resistant variety that is the result of a cross between Villa Sarchi (a native Bourbon hybrid) and Timor.

The coffee is carefully selected by the workers and processed on the farm. After the collected cherries are separated from their shells, they are placed in tanks for fermentation. After fermentation, the coffee is washed in clean water and dried in mechanical dryers for 70 hours. The parchment coffee is aged on the farm for 60 days before being transported to the cooperative dry mill.

Mexican Finca La Estanzuela is our second price performance coffee after Pink Star, which has green tea, caramel notes on the nose, dry orange, caramel and chamomile tea notes on the palate.

Enjoy it! 😊
