About the coffee:
Specialty Coffee Mexico Fatima Bio
Notes: brown sugar and black cherry
Why we selected it?
Specialty coffee Mexico Fatima Bio impressed our coffee seeker Yordan Dubov, because while selecting the coffee he found that this coffee ripens for about 8 months, after which the coffee cherries are carefully picked by hand before being transported and roasted. The drying process of the coffee beans takes place on special raised beds for a period of 15 to 30 days, alternating between direct sunlight and shade. This specific method of growing the coffee gives a taste combination of notes of brown sugar and black cherry.
In the flavor profile of the coffee stand out notes of brown sugar and black cherry – a combination that you will like.
Jordan Dubov recommends that this espresso coffee be brewed in a filter or espresso machine. If you prepare the Mexico Fatima Bio ground coffee on a filter, you will feel the stronger notes of black cherry. If you choose to make an espresso, you will enjoy an intense and dense taste – a combination of all the notes in the coffee.
Where does it come from?
Specialty coffee Mexico Fatima Bio is grown on the family farm of Ernesto Pérez Orrea – Finca Fatima. Ernesto Pérez Orrea’s family has a rich history that goes hand in hand with the history of Mexican coffee. His great-grandfather, Antonio Pérez Galván, was employed as a coffee merchant by the Arbuckle brothers in the late 19th century, mainly because he was fluent in English and Spanish. Antonio had one daughter, Genoveva, who married Antonio Orrea. Together they founded Orea Machines, a company responsible for helping to industrialize the Mexican coffee industry in the 1950s. The two of them acquired Finca Fatima in the 1970s and later bequeathed it to their children – Ernesto and his sister Livet. Ernesto studied in the USA, where he was inspired by the growing popularity of specialty coffee. Through the Coffee Quality Institute (CQI), he became a licensed Q Grader. Ernesto returns to Veracruz to take over the family farm and coffee processing factory. Just one year after returning and focusing on growing specialty coffee, Finca Fatima has been awarded as a top 10 finalist at Mexico’s Cup of Excellence 2019.
