Curator's Notes

Guie’nashi translates to “sweet flower” from the native Zapotec language of Oaxaca. The phrase both roots this coffee to the indigenous community who cultivated it, and conveys its expressive, sweet, and fruit-forward flavors.

Roaster's Notes

https://wateravenuecoffee.com/collections/beans/products/mexico-guienashi Tasting Notes: Blackberry, Cola, Tamarind Region: Sierra Sur, Oaxaca, Mexico Process: Washed Varietals: Pluma, Caturra and Mundo Nuovo Elevation: 1,300 to 1,900 MASL Guie’nashi is a word that translates to “sweet flower” from the native Zapotec language of Southern Oaxaca: the phrase roots this coffee to the indigenous community who cultivated and harvested it while conveying it’s expressive flavor. The coffee was collected from 4 specific farming areas in the region: San Juan Ozolotepec, San Francisco Ozolotepec, San José Ozolotepec, and San Felipe Lachillo. The community-focused SICOBI cooperative is responsible for organizing and exporting the lot. Coffees from this region have an unexpectedly fruit-forward profile. One reason for this could be the particularly dry landscape of the Sierra Sur range, which speeds along the cherries as they ripen on the branch. Another could be the wooden tanks these farmers use to process their coffee; the porousness of the wood has the potential to increase the fermentation taking place, as the seeds are being depulped and cleaned of their fruit. Whatever the cause – the result is an sweet, versatile coffee that applauds the skilled work of the farmers of the Sierra Sur.

"Very nice coffee with dark berry notes. A cola presence is there as well, something like a Dr. Pepper. "

"I am typically not a fan of Mexican coffees however I will give this one a second look even though it was very light. No real strong flavors jumped out at me today. This could almost pass for a decaf."
