Our fourth year offering coffee from Macario Garcia!
blackberry, red licorice, guava
...in this coffee.
From the city of Oaxaca, one might think any coffee farm within the state of Oaxaca is a short drive away. But even at a quick pace, Macario’s farm still takes close to 6 hours to reach. The drive is worth it though, and the contrast of Macario’s peaceful farm with the bustling city of Oaxaca can at once be startling and at the same time, quite welcoming. This is our fourth year sharing Macario’s entire harvest with you and we are impressed as ever with how delicious his coffee is.
Fresh off the grind we are smelling sweet dark fruit like ripe blackberries. A lovely red licorice note can be found in the cup, joined by hints of tropical fruit like guava. As always we are amazed at the level of complexity found in Macario’s coffee – truly some of the best coffee Mexico has to offer!
Time: 27-30 sec

We buy, roast, and sell coffee. On a surface level, this sounds simple enough. But buying coffee in a way we are proud of and in a way that those who buy our coffee are proud of is often complex, challenging, and hard work. We find ourselves on a continuum of buying and selling that progresses towards more sustainable, meaningful and equitable relationships. The chart below provides basic information for each lot on where we are on this journey.
