More: The Mazateca region is famous for its flora and fauna. High in the mountains of Northern Oaxaca, the community there has a culture rich with ritual, legend, and tradition. Mazateca is where Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) was born to commerate death and the importance of life, and to honor our families and ancestry.
Coffee quality has great improved in the Mazatec region during the last few years, and in 2016 a group of producers gathered and created an organization (called ORCE Mazateca) with the objective of boosting the production of specialty coffee in the area and improve the livelihood of hundreds of small-scale producers.
The quality of this iteration of our Danipaguache series of Mexican coffees is a beautiful example of what a Mexican coffee can be: smooth and well-rounded with a distinct chocolatey sweetness, vibrant acidity, and subtle dried fruit notes.
