Mexico Recap -- Spring Sourcing Trip 2022

Mexico Recap -- Spring Sourcing Trip 2022

After some reflection after an important trip to Oaxaca, Mexico this past weekend, we’re excited to share these important updates and notes with you:

  • The coffee tasted amazing.  Super clean and dynamic single producers lots including some wild yet clean experimental processing techniques

  • Standouts included a new-to-us La Cañada single producer, Cienfuegos, Honerato's extended fermentation 🔥, a couple new producing groups from Chiapas, and some amazing single producer lots from Miramar and Yosotatu

  • Volume is way down across the country, especially in Oaxaca.  We'll be transitioning our big purchases from Oaxaca to Chiapas. Time will tell if this is a permanent transition.

  • Competition is way up.  The secret is out and bigger sourcing/roasting companies are moving in to see what they can do.  Thankfully we are very well positioned to swoop up the best of the best.  

  • Prices are going to be higher than ever.  The only surprise is how much higher.  Lower volumes and increased competition has resulted in a completely new landscape in Mexico.  Expect a big jump in price across the board.  Rest assured we have the best and our prices reflect an equivalent dividend passed onto the producers.
