SEY | Mexico Mazateca #1, Washed Field Blend
From our friends at Sey:
Oaxaca is a new region for us as we continue exploring Mexico’s potential. It is also one of the newer places we are most excited about. In the cup we find a deep, syrupy sweetness, darker fruits of plum and blackberry, and a soft lemon acidity.
Sierra Mazateca, Oaxaca
1,800 - 2,000 masl
Hand picked at peak ripeness. Floated to further remove defects and depulped on the day of harvest. Dry fermented for 24-36 hours. Dried on raised beds for 10-15 days.
This coffee comes from the remote parts of the Sierra Mazateca mountains, where there are mostly closed indigenous communities. Most are not Spanish speakers, making this a very difficult region to work within. We are very excited to be working in this region because it is relatively unrepresented, and the micro climate seems ideal for producing complex cup profiles. We will continue learning more about this unique region as we explore these coffees in the years to come.
