We are incredibly excited to bring this Mexican coffee back to our list of offerings with this complex light roast. Though Mexican coffees are sometimes overlooked by coffee roasters in favor of brighter, more fruity options, we discovered a distinct richness in these particular beans that had us coming back cup after cup. Grown in the southern state of Oaxaca, this coffee is named after the town of Monte Alban located near the Zapotec Ruins–a place that offers the ideal environment for bold and deep coffee cultivation. After the coffee cherries have been picked, they are then washed using traditional methods and dried on patios. The culmination of this hard work gives this coffee a delicious mix of flavors including citrus, caramel, cinnamon, and cloves. Drinkers love our Monte Alban in part because of its complex profile, and although some Mexican coffees are overlooked by roasters in favor of brighter and fruitier options, we discovered a distinct richness in these particular beans that makes us always come back for more! Wonderful notes of citrus, caramel, cinnamon, and cloves in this delish light roast.
