Get the best Mexican coffee at JBC. Welcoming back a crowd favorite here at JBC- a rich and winey coffee from southern Mexico that is what we have dubbed an “easy sipper.” It’s truly just that-really easy and pleasant to drink day after day. Tasting notes of green grape, tres leches, peach, and green apple abound in this lovely cup that will give you the warm fuzzies this winter. Enjoy!
About. Monte Alban is a 1,000 year old Zapotec ruin in southern Mexico that is surrounded by mountainous coffee farms. One of the earliest Meso-American great urban centers of the classical period, Monte Alban housed the advanced ancient Zapotec culture that made many developments in astronomy, writing, and even medicine. After their mysterious abandonment of the site post 600 AD, the area was used by other groups, including the Mixtec, who recognized the site as spiritually significant. Today, a sense of magic still resonates from Monte Alban and the past and present are joined through culture, artifacts, and delicious coffee. Coffee growers in the region have been producing coffee for more than three generations. We purchased this coffee from Caravela coffee, who is working with farmers to help them certify their farms and add value to their product. What stood out to JBC was not only the rich history of Monte Alban but the beautiful cup the farmers have managed to once again produce this year. Monte Alban consistently produces some of the best Mexican coffee and it shows again in this lot.
