Saint Coffee Roasters
Las Cotorras, Mexico
A new and exciting filter coffee for us which deviates from our normal line up.
On the first sip this coffee is reminiscent of bell pepper, tamarind and spices. As the coffee cools down the flavours develop with the bell pepper giving its place to a distinct black pepper note accompanied by unprocessed cocoa, an underlying note of tamarind and hints of lime.
Las Cotorras is grown in the highlands of the state of Chiapas, home to the Triunfo Biosphere Reserve. As you journey through the remote highlands here, an incredibly beautiful species of bird can be seen, and this over time has become a symbol in the region for authenticity and freedom. These birds are called Cotorras and they find their perfect habitat on coffee farms that produce the amazing coffees in the highlands of Chiapas.
El Triunfo Biosphere is a protected area of close to 120,000 hectares. It represents the very last of the Central American cloud forests, where naturally occurring condensation is trapped by the forest, giving life to a large number of plant and animal species.
Coffee from Las Cotorras is unique for its sweet notes of chocolate, red fruit, spices, raisins, berries, and its creamy and full body.
