With aromas of toasty fresh bread and sweet berries, brewing this fruity cup is like strolling past your favorite bakery. Notes like fruit tarts, apricot jam, and-- yes!-- strawberry shortcake. A splash of cream really makes the strawberry notes sing. Silky, smooth, and mild: a sip of pure summer sunshine.
This highly sustainable naturally processed Mexican coffee is a favorite amongst our customers; the natural process imparts a very “fruity” aroma and flavor characteristic to the cup that comes through loud and beautifully clear – especially when prepared as an espresso. Notes of strawberry shortcake, silky milk chocolate, and a mild apricot sweetness.
"I guess I'm just not a fan of coffee that tastes like apricot. It was just too bland. I didn't really enjoy drinking it--I just drank it to get my caffeine for the day. Could barely taste the strawberry, just chocolate and apricot. I made it with a french press and drank it hot."
"Finally trying this sample from a few months ago. It had a pleasant fruity smell, but no one flavor stood out."
"Another solid choice form Velton's. I have had very little Mexican coffee, and this one will get me coming back! Love the fruit-forward flavor."
"Always a fan of Velton's coffee and this roast did not disappoint. This coffee smells incredible upon opening the box and was a delicious addition to my morning cup. "
"This was a great coffee, both on batch drip and on a french press. Both of these brew methods really brought out the chocolate notes. It's a very solid morning coffee, which I love. The way a coffee feels in the AM is one of my most important factors in judging it. I highly recommend. "
"Amazing coffee! By far my favorite from Bean Box. Beautiful chocolate flavor without being overwhelmingly sweet at all. Perfect! If you are a chocolate lover, you need to try this one. You won’t regret it. "
"I am not sure if I made it with the wrong proportions but just did not have a strong flavor for me. "
"I thought it had a strong dark chocolate-like body with some red fruit notes."
"Not sure if this would be 3.5 or 4 stars for me, but I definitely enjoyed it. First Mexican coffee and was very pleased. Fruitiness was very pleasantly well pronounced and at times did taste like a strawberry shortcake. Brewed french press around 4 and a half minutes with two mesh filters."
"Great light roast coffee. Purchased 12oz and have enjoyed it for days. Has deeper flavor than many light roasts.. Has mild chocolate flavor with slight fruit sweetness. Little to no acidity or aftertaste. Good coffee from great roaster."
"It's subtle strawberry & cream flavors rounded out by milk chocolate with just a hint of lemon/apricot makes this coffee amazing any time of day. I'm a big fan of Naturals, and this Natural Mexico didn't disappoint. I fell in love with this coffee at first sip and have added it to my favorites!"
"My absolute favorite roast from Velton's. The strawberry flavors are truly out in full force in this cup, and they make for a perfect start to my morning. A must-try! I used a chemex to brew these beans. "
"Not my usual pick, but still very nice. fruity, crisp, flavorful cup. "
"This is currently our favorite coffee. It has an amazing flavor and is very good black or with frothed cream. The strawberry shortcake comes through more with the cream. "
"This is the first coffee from Mexico I have tried. I was very pleased with this coffee it had a beautiful aroma and tons of flavor. The fruit excels in this coffee and takes you on a trip through the region, with it being so lightly roasted. "
"Superb! This was a perfect afternoon cup, very light and fruity, easy drinking!"
"A fantastic cup. I am not a light roast fan generally, but this is such an easy to drink coffee. You will definitely get some light fruit and chocolate notes. A very enjoyable cup that will speak to many different palettes. "
"Very good coffee. I was especially looking forward to the strawberry taste, but it did not come through as much as I would like. You WILL taste strawberry if you look for it. The lemon/chocolate taste is easily noticed. VERY good for breakfast cup. Will buy again!"
"I've been very happy with Velton's so far, and this coffee was no different. The fruit notes were balanced well with the chocolate. Very nice on a dark and stormy night. "
"I think for the most part people forget about Mexico, they go for the central/South American roasts mostly. But well done veltons well done. Brewed in a french press. Light and bright with a medium finish of fruit."
"Great light coffee, personally I cannot discern the exact fruit flavors in this coffee however it has a very nice fruit profile. Very smooth and great aftertaste. Would definitely recommend giving this coffee a try. "
"So sweet, smooth, and yummy. This is one of my favorites! "
"Pleasant all around coffee, good for anyone who claims not to like dark or strongly brewed coffee."
"I am not a light roast fan, but with a little cream this coffee was definitely interesting."
"The beans smell amazing. I used a french press to prepare this coffee. On it's own, the coffee tastes a little bland, but it's possible it is simply the lightness of the beans and I am used to darker coffees. With milk and creamer it is very smooth and delicious. "
"This coffee has simply one of the best, sweetest smells I have ever felt in a brewed cup (did 3:45m brewing in a french press). Very balanced, smooth cup. I was surprised to find out this coffee is the least expensive of all four I received in the box, since this is the one I appreciated the most."
"I'm not typically a light roast lover, but after tasting a sample of this lovely brew, I ordered more straight away. I added cream and just a touch of sugar, and I'm in love with the fruity, chocolaty smoothness of this coffee! Cant wait to get more.."
"I love this coffee! Brews an excellent cup plus it makes some of the best espresso I have ever enjoyed. I had to buy more after the first taste."
