his coffee comes from the high-altitude area of the Sierra Madre, bordering the biosphere reserve El Trifuno, which is the habitat of an Endemic Bird Area, “El Quetzal.” This ecological region represents 30 percent of the flora in all of Chiapas territory.
The microclimate in this region creates a cloud forest, due the Soconuscu rainforest zone around the Novillero River. The weather is humid with lots of shade, cool conditions at night and excellent soil, which together create a perfect environment for the development of specialty coffee.
Our El Jaguar comes from a group of small producers and is harvested and processed by hand. After harvesting it is de-pulped, fermented and washed before being dried in the sun.
When roasted, the coffee aroma is spicy with notes of cinnamon and dark chocolate. The flavour consists of a round body with notes of vanilla and tangerine. There is also a sweetness of brown sugar and caramel. The acidity is comparable to fine lemon grass.
