Gabriel Mathiew de Clieu, a French Naval Officer, played the vital role in the history of Mexican coffee. He managed to acquire a descendant of a coffee tree given to King Louis XIV of France, and he made it his duty to take the tree to his estate on Martinique. During the voyage, the miraculous tree survived Tunisian pirates, violent storms, dangerously covetous passengers, and not to mention, a deficit of fresh water. However, it arrived safely in Martinique where it flourished.
Mexico's "Spirit of the Aztec" coffee is "Altura Pluma," which means high-grown at 3,500 feet or more; this qualifies it as some of the finest coffee that Mexico has to offer. Discover and experience the exceptional Mexico "Spirit of the Aztec" coffee with its medium body, fine acidity, and a savory flavor that is mild, sweet, and unforgettable.
This high-grown, Mexican coffee is found in the region of Oaxaca. After harvesting, the coffee beans are wet-processed embodying nutty undertones of the soil. We roast the beans to medium-light which produces a medium-bodied coffee that is winy with slight tones of chocolate and a light acidity.
