Mexico Las Cotorras AA

  • $16.49

Fully-washed and fermented for 20-24 hours, Las Cotorras coffee is grown at 1300-1700 masl in the highlands of the state of Chiapas, Mexico. Named after the Cotorras bird which find their perfect habitat in the native shade trees on coffee farms.  Preferring a "coffeelands" habitat for nesting, these birds are a symbol of authenticity and freedom in Chaipas. Known for its sweet notes, we found this cup of Las Cotorras coffee to be balanced and mellow with an orange zest aroma and light acidity, and notes of caramelized sugar, rough puff pastry and fresh apricot.
