Fair-Trade Mexican Decaf
|Roaster Location:||Leland, Michigan|
|Coffee Origin:||Oaxaca State, Mexico|
|Review Date:||June 2005|
A profile so delicate it has difficulty asserting itself. Gentle and lyric in the aroma, with sweet nut and a cherryish fruit that carry into the cup but remain subdued and without authority, a charming but distant warble in the woods.
This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair-Traded, meaning it was purchased from the small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Decaffeinated by the water and charcoal filter method, without the use of solvents. The nicely-named Higher Grounds Trading Company specializes only in coffees that are certified Fair-Trade and organically grown. Visit
