MEXICO MOUNTAIN WATER DECAF - Dark Roast
We only Roast to Order - All of our coffees are fresh and never stored!
This coffee produces nice spicy, chocolate, sweet and lemon flavours with a bright acidity and clean aftertaste.
The Decaf MWP Mexico HG is a traceable single estate coffee from the Finca La Laja farm close to the village of Huatusco in the state of Veracruz. La Laja is owned by Hermilo Sampieri. For three generations, the Sampieri family has produced coffee on approx. 500 ha of La Laja farm at 1,100masl utilizing an average temperature from 15-22 Grad Celsius, fertile soil and a tropical climate with annual rainfall of 2000 ml. Today, the farm is certified for its sustainable production with RFA and 4C. The name "La Laja" is derived from the name of a stone common in the region of Huatusco, Veracruz.
The harvest can go from October/November up through April. Using water from the glaciers of the highest mountain in Mexico, a method called Mountain Water Process, the Mexico HG is immersed to extract caffeine. This method allows the green beans to maintain their flavor, as the water passes through a filter that removes the caffeine from the water, so that the water can be re-used with just the bean profiles it originated with. This method is done by DESCAMEX (Descafeinadores Mexicanos).
This is a pleasant enough coffee but doesn’t have the richer rounded flavour of the Colombian Medellin decaf that I have also bought
Fresh roasted and ground coffee, delivered quickly. Mexican Mountain water decaf a rich and tasty decaf, just don't make it weak.
I love this coffee as it tastes great whatever method I use. Usually have medium/dark but prefer it dark roast as I did this time. Beans stay whole and grind well from espresso grind to cafetière grind.
Drinking it now love it.
A good dark roast, the beans were still shiny,
