Product Description

La Merced del Potrero is a small coffee town overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Oaxaca’s southern Coastal region. This coffee has been produced by a group of approximately 256 women calling themselves Female Coffee Producers of La Merced del Potrero (Mujeres Cafetaleras la Merced del Potrero). Together they farm about 610 hectares of coffee in the fertile foothills of Oaxaca’s Sierra Sur (Southern Mountains). The parcels of land are located between 900 and 1000 meters above sea level, though the town itself is found at a much lower elevation than the coffee plantations which line the top of the mountain.

During harvest, around 3 passes of selective handpicking are made. After being harvested, the cherries are pulped on the producers’ own farms and then fermented in tanks for approximately 18 hours before being washed and dried on concrete patios.

The group aims improve productivity whilst maintaining their organic certification and also fortifying the living conditions of each member. The group holds USDA, EU, JAS, Rainforest, Fairtrade and UTZ certifications.

There are notes of peach, apple, and chocolate with a sweet floral notes of candied orange.
