    Mexican coffee has progressed hugely over recent years in terms of quality and we're delighted to continue sourcing this high-end coffee from this region. It's even better to support the wonderful ACESA CAFÉ ORGANIC project in Oaxaca, a small-holding network of farmers maintaining microlots in the north of this area.

    After the success of our previous Mexican offerings, Union San Pedro & Huatusco, we realise that we've set the bar high. Fear not...
    Sierra Mixteca delivers, with chocolate, caramel & hazelnut notes, proving itself to be a punchy and sweet, perfect for espresso based drinks, but also subtle enough to be enjoyed through filter, due to its wet fermented process.

    Sierra Mixteca is a mountainous area located in the north of Oaxaca. The Mixteca civilization was one of the most brilliant cultures in Mesoamerica and many of its traditions can still be seen in today’s society. In the highlands of the Sierra Mixteca region, there are hundreds of small-scale coffee growers, descendants of the Mixteca and with farm sizes of no more than 2-3 hectares. These farmers are dedicated and committed to producing coffee for a living, but many of them also produce other things like honey and fruits to diversify their offering. In the year 2016, famers in this region founded an organization called ACESA CAFÉ with the objective of grouping up and working together

    with as many coffee growers as possible to improve their income and quality of live. In 2018, we started working together with this group, educating and offering technical assistance to coffee growers with a focus on fighting leaf rust, adapting to climate change, and how to achieve better prices for their coffee. We want to offer these producers and their amazing product the recognition and exposure that they deserve.
