This lot from Red de San Miguel Eloxichitlán is comprised of coffees from Mercedes Galvez Andrés, Fermin Temoxtle Rodriguez, and Bernabé Herrera. These three young smallholder producers are members of a small group of coffee producers from the Nahuas indigenous community in Mexico. After years of migrating north for seasonal agricultural work, these producers invested their savings to renovate old coffee farms and planted the rust resistant variety Costa Rica 95, hoping that they'd be able to improve their quality of life and create a sustainable income. After acquiring equipment and receiving training on processing through the Rural Development Secretariat in 2020, the group participated in the Pride of Puebla competition for the first time in 2021. In 2022, their coffees scored among the 30 best in the competition and by 2023 their coffees occupied 6 out of the 10 top lots in the competition. 

This group of young producers are a testament to the potential for young producers to achieve success in the industry and we're proud to be working with their coffee. This lot is one of the most unique coffees from Mexico we've had. It's packed with jammy fruit flavors of passionfruit and pomegranate, soft rose-like florals, and a syrupy sweetness reminds us of cherry cola and sweet vermouth.
