May Roasters Choice

May Roasters Choice

This months choice is our medium roast from Veracruz, Mexico. The SHG Finca Monte Azul is a 100% Arabica coffee bean from Mexico's Huatusco region. The beans are grown in a mountainous area with a cloud forest, which provides the ideal humidity and soil for producing high-quality coffee. The coffee has a profile that's similar to stone fruit and a body that's reminiscent of Colombian coffees due to its high altitude. When roasted dark, it has a distinct aroma and a deep flavor with notes of chocolate and nuts. 

HG EP coffee is coffee that is Strictly High Grown (SHG) and European Preparation (EP). SHG indicates that the coffee was grown at an altitude of at least 1,200 meters above sea level. EP indicates that the raw beans have been hand-sorted to remove defective beans and foreign material. More than 500,000 farmers produce coffee in Mexico. With Veracruz making up 29% of Mexico's coffee, and has been second in the country for coffee production for five years. Smallholders with less than 10 hectares compose a full 70% of Mexico’s coffee producers.
Due to their small size, most farm work is done by the family. Most farms are organic by default and many are certified.
We are excited for you all to enjoy the experience this cup brings to your home!
