ABOUT THIS COFFEE

Imagine starting at sea level in the popular Mexican beach destination of Puerto Escondido and traveling along progressively steeper and curvier roads through villages, where the local population still wear traditional indigenous clothing, eventually arriving at a lush forest intercropped with coffee, bananas, corn, beans, fruit trees, and views of the Pacific Ocean in the distance below. This is the Oaxacan coffee growing region known as the Zona Pluma where the Sierra Madre del Sur coastal mountain range is peppered with small coffee farms. This particular lot comes from 15 families living near the town of Peñas Negras that cultivate coffee on farms with just a few acres. Each producer harvests and carefully sorts cherries and then depulps, ferments, washes, and dries the coffee using their own micro-mill. They deliver their dried parchment to the family owned export company in Oaxaca called Galguera Gomez, which specializes in preparing traceable Oaxacan lots and paying producers higher incomes for the quality of their coffee.

    This is a can’t miss, get it while you can!
    While I have never had a coffee I didn’t love from Modest; Peru – Cafe Capili is my new fav! The aroma just opening the bag was enough to win me over but the brew ( pour over) was the clincher. Thank you for your superb roasts!

    Every bag of coffee I order from you guys is five stars! We use it for pour over, French press and cold brew. My favorite is cold brew as you can really taste the flavors in depth. Absolutely delicious!
