General info

State: Veracruz

Varietal: Typica, Bourbon and Caturra

Elevation: 1,700 masl

Processing method: Washed


This year, we discovered a highly promising coffee area in Limontitla, which means Land of Lemons in the Nahuatl indigenous language. Coffee there grows above 1,700 masl in agroforestry. Unfortunately for producers it is an under-explored region because of road deterioration and insecurity.
A characteristic of this area is that producers mostly sell cherries and not parchment. That’s due to a combination of history (5 wealthy families used to control all the processing and exporting during colonisation and after), and there are frequent draughts that make water scarse for wet milling.
We went on to buy cherries and processed them at our farm mill 3 hours away, and realised the incredible cup potential of this area. We look forward to developing our purchases there where the introduction of specialty can bring much better market opportunities to growers.
