We're absolutely brimming with excitement about this lot of washed Typica and Bourbon from the Mixteca region of Oaxaca. Specialty coffee in Mexico has been undergoing a renaissance in recent years, but an outbreak of leaf rust in 2015 slashed yields dramatically for many farmers and lead to the dissolution of many Mexican specialty coffee cooperatives. Eight enterprising farmers from the village of Guadalupe Miramar have worked through this challenge, reformatting their farms to increase quality and yield without cooperative support. Their dedication to excellence has produced a shining example of coffee from the Mixteca region, where cool climates and abundant shade trees allow sweet, fruity flavors to develop. The farms in Guadalupe Miramar are looking to build on the success of this crop with expanded planting in the coming years, and exploration of new varietals for the region like Gesha. Given how much we love this coffee, we can't wait to see what progress will look! </p>

The flavor of Guadalupe Miramar is rooted in a juicy berry note that seems reminiscent of strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry all at once. A note of grape lends a little tartness and differentiation of sweetness to the profile, while a note of tobacco gives this cup a distinct spice and earthiness that we really love. It's a unique flavor from a unique region, grown by people who really care about coffee. That pretty much checks all the boxes for us, and we're super happy that we have to the opportunity to share Guadalupe Miramar's coffee with the club. Cheers!  </p>

Nice and bold - Guadalupe Miramara

Don’t be too quick to judge this coffee. The first flavors must settle and excite your taste buds. It is the second sip that you notice the boldness and earthy spice flavor. It is a unique flavor that I enjoyed long after the last drop in the cup.

Solid Cup of Flavor

Really liked this solid flavor that keeps it's notes while sipping on the way to work. Flavor does not fade or diminish. Good one.

One of the best well rounded coffees of all time

This coffee is incredible, starts with a light berry then quickly gets covered by a molassas/tobacco flavor that makes for a perfectly balanced coffee.

Rich and Smooth

Loved this coffee, hit most of my boxes for what I love about this coffee program. I don't generally pick coffee from Mexico but I would do this one again.

A generic Latin American coffee

Full disclosure, I'm a big fan of African coffees. The Guadalupe Miramar certainly isn't a bad cup, it's quite balanced. But it'll offer your pretty typical LA profile: medium body, little acidity, and earthy notes. No surprises here. I would not describe it as "juicy" like the summary above.

Guadalupe Miramar

This is an interesting coffee, with a definite 'tobacco' note. I love light coffees because you can pick out flavor notes every time. I like the spice taste in the coffee as well. Very good. I was surprised as I'm normally not a big fan of Mexican coffees.
