LIMITED RELEASE COFFEE!
Garra de Jaguar is a community coffee from La Mixteca, a cultural region and home to the Mixtec people, one of Mexico’s largest indigenous groups. La Mixteca touches three Mexican states – the western half of Oaxaca and small parts of Guerrero and Puebla. This lot features coffee from smallholder farmers working an average of 1-2 hectares of land (1 hectare is about the size of a football field). Red Fox Coffee Merchants sources this, and other great Mexican coffees from their Mexican home base/lab in Oaxaca City. They put in a massive amount of work building relationships with producers, analyzing samples, and building high quality lots like this one.
This coffee is highly, highly drinkable. The flavor profile rises from a base of semi-sweet dark chocolate, dates, and raisins, and evolves into accents of apple and lime zest. It all floats in a rich creamy body and the finish lingers with hints of cocoa and toasted walnuts.
