Mexico Zongolica coffee, affectionately known as WPZ or "Woman Power Zongolica," is a product of the hard work and dedication of 20 women who grew and produced it.
Originating from the Zongolica region in Veracruz, Mexico, this coffee is deeply influenced by the rich ancestral heritage of its people, particularly the Nahuas indigenous group. The Nahuas have passed down their language and traditional knowledge through generations, sharing wisdom about plants, rivers, animals, mountains, and the universe through captivating storytelling by their elders.
In Zongolica, coffee farms are designed as agro-ecosystems, taking into consideration the broader impact of farming on the environment. These farms strive to maintain a balance of energy and nutrients to preserve the region's biodiversity. Intercropping and forest conservation are among the sustainable practices employed in these farms.
The coffee beans are processed using hand-cranked de-pulpers, carefully washed, and then dried on patios for a period of 15 days. Each of the 20 producers who contributed to this lot followed the same meticulous practices on their individual farms, ensuring consistency and quality in every cup.
Cupping notes: Tropical fruits, caramel, chocolate, florals, brown sugar; citric acidity, juicy body.
