Founded in 2001, the Union Ramal Santa Cruz in the Chiapas region of Southern Mexico has all ready grown to 500 members. Grown near the Guatamalan border, it's from a lower elevation than you typically find in the region. The different conditions in which it grows makes it stand out from other coffees of Mexico.
Steve Mangigian, roastmaster of Zingerman’s Coffee Company is a big fan. “The Chiapas region has consistently produced our favorite Mexican coffees. This one has great sweetness and not a lot of acidity. It's one of those coffees that's just as smooth and drinkable when it cools as when it's freshly brewed.”
Tasting Notes: cocoa, hazelnut, and citrus, with a smooth, almost satiny, body.
Facts: Roasted fresh by Zingerman’s Coffee Company. Shipped whole bean.
