Mexico Finca San Carlos comes to us from our friends at Royal Coffee in Emeryville, CA. Grown in the southwestern Chiapas region (near the Guatemalan border), this fully washed coffee is sourced from Finca San Carlos, owned and operated by Alfred Klein. Royal has the following to say about Alfred and Finca San Carlos:

“Mexico Finca San Carlos is sourced from a family-owned estate located within the municipality Unión Juárez in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. Finca San Carlos has a rich heritage that dates back to 1896, when Ludwig Hotzen, a German immigrant, first established coffee cultivation on the western slope of Volcán Tacaná, which sits on the international border between Mexico and Guatemala. With some financial support from Royal, Alfred Klein purchased the farm from the Hotzen family in 2013.Alfred has worked hard to renovate the farm after leaf rust destroyed nearly 85 percent of production. There is light at the end of the tunnel and some of the advantages on the farm are in full swing; like an abundance of spring water being utilized to ferment coffee for 48 hour and then double washed with a 48 soak before slowly drying the coffee on patios. Finca San Carlos also has a state-of-the-art water purification system and biodigester to ensure that the water is returned downstream, clean, PH balanced, and oxygenated. Alfred has also maintained the long standing commitment to the Guatemalan migrant works and their families; providing onsite housing, meals, healthcare, and education to offset the hardship of seasonal work in such a remote location.”

On the cupping table, Finca San Calros stood out for its strong notes of fresh cream and caramel with a spicy and floral finish. A smooth drinking and flavorful medium roast, Finca San Carlos is a stellar option for filtered drip, both with and without cream. Finca San Carlos is our first Mexican offering, and we’re really excited to share it with you; we know you’re going to dig it.
