This month we bring you 2 Mexican coffees namely PLUMA HIDALGO (Oaxaca) and TENEJAPA (Chiapas). Expect both delicious sweetness and pristine, fruity and creamy coffee flavors sourced from the unique micro-ecosystems found in Oaxaca’s and Chiapas coffee-growing regions
Jesus Salazar (aka Cafeologo), developed in the Tenejapa region of Chiapas a coffee-growing project involving the Mayan communities. He works directly with 140 micro-producers who cultivate high-quality coffee grown under the shade of the Mexican primary forest. This light-roasted coffee has notes of lemon, hazelnut and honey. Perfect for elegant, bright and juicy filter coffees.
- Producer: 70 farmers, Tseltal community, at BenefIcio Sibactel
- Location: Tenejapa, Chiapas
- Altitude: 1750m.
- Process: Fully washed Arabica.
- Varieties: Red bourbon, Red caturra
- Origin: Mexico
Recommended for filter brews. Recommended brew recipe:
20g medium ground coffee. 320 ml of water, temp 95°C
Blooming (preinfusion) pour some water just to cover all the coffee ground and then give a quick stir with a spoon without mixing too much. After that follow 2-3 pours as He does in the video and after the last pour, the cone dripper has to be swirled and tapped a couple of times so that the coffee ground sits evenly at the bottom of the cone. This will reduce the risk that the water will drain only in the centre of the cone
Overall brewing time should not exceed 3 minutes. If it is longer, it means that the coffee ground is too fine. So we advise to grind one or two steps coarser. On the other way around, If it is too fast (less than 2 minutes), we need to grind finer to slow down the brew.
2) PLUMA HIDALGO
This coffee originates from coffee producers living on the steep lands of the Sierra Sur Mountains, in the southern region of Oaxaca. The refreshing winds from the Pacific create an ideal microclimate that preserves the Typica plant variety. The result is a sweet and mellow coffee with balanced acidity and flavours of dark chocolate caramel, and honey.

- Location: Sierra Sur, Oaxaca.
- Altitude: 1500m.
- Process: Washed Arabica.
