Our 431 is an espresso blend or single origin coffee that is a unique approach to classic darker styled espressos. We start by sourcing coffees only for the purpose of roasting a little bit heavier. This means the coffees must be grown at a higher elevation in order to take longer roast times but maintain the acidity and complexity. While most of our coffees are drank black, this is the one coffee that we roast in a way designed to be great with milk in an espresso or even brewed with cream.
This seasonal installment from Mexico is the perfect coffee for our 431 roast.
Sweet and complex yet very full bodied and dense we think it pairs perfectly to the classic chocolate profile of Mexico Chiapas.
On our trip to Mexico in April of 2017 we fell in love with the coffees of Mexico. The uniqueness coming from this country was so surprising. Every single coffee was so unique but on these community lots we would see such a trend of this underlying theme of chocolate, toffee and a very pleasant acidity that was sweet and soft. We are proud to present the next chapter of our 431 from Mexico.
