Story

Cimitrio Luna

Cimitrio Luna's farm in San Agustin Loxicha, Oaxaca, is one of the larger farms that our importing partner, Osito, works with in the region. The norm in Oaxaca is that farms, and thus the lots they produce, are so small that it is not possible to create separate single-farmer micro-lots. Cimitrio is an exciting exception to this norm.

Oaxaca

Sitting right in between Mexico’s two other major coffee-growing regions Chiapas and Veracruz, Oaxaca produces some of the most distinctive coffees in Mexico. Coffee production in Oaxaca has not been modernized to the same extent as in its neighbouring regions, with many producers preferring traditional cultivation methods and coffee varieties.

Pluma Hidalgo & Mundo Novo

Pluma Hidalgo is a Typica descended variety, originally cultivated in Mexico and introduced to the Loxicha region of Oaxaca 1854. Its name is derived from the small village of Pluma Hidalgo in Oaxaca. Since its initial introduction to Loxicha, it has spread to the nearby micro-regions of La Costa and Sierra Sur and adapted itself to their specific growing conditions.

Mundo Novo resulted from a natural cross of Typica and Bourbon varieties in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The variety was discovered in 1943 in the municipality of Mundo Novo, which is now called Urupês. Mundo Novo is very tall, matures late, and has good quality potential at high altitudes. Unfortunately is highly susceptible to fungus, pests, and disease.
