Organic Mexican Select, Fair-Trade Medium Roast by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: November 2005
Origin: Southern Mexico Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Intense aroma with a tightly knit complexity: muted spice, apple, pear, chocolate. In the cup sweet, delicate and balanced, with subtle but distinct chocolate notes and a quietly vibrant acidity. The chocolate turns toward cocoa in the mildly astringent finish.

Notes: Entirely produced by small-holding Mexican farmers and their cooperatives, most in the Oaxaca growing region. Certified organically grown and certified Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.

Who Should Drink It: Balanced social and environmental idealists.
