SEY | Mexico Santa Cruz, Washed Field Blend
From our friends at Sey:
Our first Mexican offering of the year comes from the mountainous state of Chiapas in the south of Mexico. Pepe is a remarkable young producer, winning the Mexico Cup of Excellence last year. In the cup we find purple fruits, a deep nougat sweetness, and a complex yet balanced acidity.
Bourbon, Typica, Yellow Caturra, Gesha
Hand picked at peak ripeness. Floated to further remove defects and depulped on the day of harvest. Wet fermented for 20-72 hours. Dried on raised beds for 9-12 days until the coffee reaches approximately 10.5% moisture content.
Pepe Arguello is a very cool, young producer. His farm, Finca Santa Cruz, is already achieving widespread notoriety after only three years of production. When Pepe decided to purchase Finca Santa Cruz he immediately decided to build it around producing specialty coffee. With land at 1,700 masl on the Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, his farming practices reflect his desire for a more precise, agronomically advanced, and conservation-focused approach. He is meticulous with his farming and processing practices, and invests heavily in the biodiversity of the land.
