Mexico Las Calacas | Featured Coffee

"One of the finest coffees to ever come across our cupping table."

Excellent Mexican coffees are a rare find these days. When they show up on shelves, they turn heads. This lack of exposure and recognition, however, is not indicative of Mexican producers’ ability. Rather it’s due in large part to La Roya (coffee rust disease) that has significantly decreased recent supply. Additionally, threatening instability in the region further complicates the environment which invariably cripples production.

Needless to say, the last several years have required tireless perseverance and hard work from coffee farmers in Mexico. Yet, against this ominous backdrop, Faustino Garcia has produced an award-winning coffee that has become one of the finest to ever come across our cupping table.

You can find Las Calacas at these fine locations (listed alphabetically) or order online here.
