|Roaster Location:||Huatusco, Vera Cruz, Mexico|
|Coffee Origin:||Ethiopia, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru.|
|Review Date:||February 2008|
Quiet aroma with walnut and hints of cedar and dark chocolate. In the cup heavy body with a slightly rough mouthfeel, an almost syrupy sweet structure, and dominating musty/earthy notes that can be read as a sort of robust, walnut-toned dark chocolate. The sweetness carries into a rich, slightly tight, continued walnut-toned finish.
Pachamama is a cooperative of cooperatives, owned by small holding farmers who are members of cooperatives in five different countries: Ethiopia, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru. Their coffees are roasted in small batches in the United States and packaged in sophisticated valve-topped, recyclable cans. This blend, consisting of coffees from all five cooperatives, is very complex in terms of origins but displays a paradoxically rather simple profile. All coffees in the blend are certified organically grown and also Fair Trade certified, meaning they were purchased at a "fair" or economically sustainable price from the small-holding farmers making up these democratically-run cooperatives.
