  • Mexico Ixhuatlan Finca La Playa

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: April 2013
Origin: Chiapas State, Mexico Price: $12.95/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet-toned, delicately pungent. Honeysuckle, fresh-cut cedar, walnut, blackcurrant in aroma and cup. Balanced, gently brisk acidity; silky mouthfeel. Hints of flavor carry into a sweetly balanced finish.

Notes: From trees of the heirloom Bourbon and Typica varieties; grown on Finca Santa Rosa in Chiapas State, Mexico. Beansmith Coffee is a small-batch roasting company serving the Omaha region that believes that coffee drinkers should know as much as they can about the coffee they drink, and that there is a story behind every cup, one worth exploring. Visit or call 866-663-5295 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Classic Mexico: clean, softly bright, quietly complex, with a hint of the elegant dry berry note associated with the heirloom Bourbon variety.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
