    Cupping Notes: Brown Sugar, Cashew, Bold

    Coffees from Chiapas State are grown in the mountains of the southeastern-most corner of Mexico, near the border with Guatemala. The market name traditionally associated with these coffees is Tapachula, from the city of that name, but coffee sellers now usually label them Chiapas. Chiapas produces some of the very best and highest-grown Mexico coffees.

    The typical fine Mexico coffee is analogous to a good light white wine -- delicate in body, with a pleasantly dry, acidy snap. If you drink your coffee black and prefer a light, acidy cup, you will like these typical Mexico specialty coffees. However, some Mexico coffees, particularly those from high growing regions in Chiapas, rival the best Guatemala coffees in high-grown power and complexity.

    Fine Ground: At a fine grind, coffee should be soft to the touch – slightly finer than granulated sugar.

    Espresso: Great espresso requires skill, patience and quality equipment. Without these things, and a proper grind, espresso can be thin and weak or over extracted and clog in the portafilter. The perfect grind is essential to reaching espresso nirvana; an intensely rich and creamy extraction with thick crema and well rounded flavor.
    Grind: Fine/Very Fine

    Aeropress: The Aeropress is a quick and efficient way to make flavorful, rich coffee with low acidity and bitterness. With specially designed micro-filter technology the Aeropress consistently provides some of the best coffee in just under 20 seconds.
    Grind: Fine/Medium

    Medium Ground: At a medium grind, coffee should be gritty like sand with no considerably large pieces.

    Auto Drip Pot: The Auto Drip style coffee maker is an efficient and hassle-free way to make a fresh pot. With the correct grind and water to coffee ratio, it IS possible to get a great cup of coffee using this method.
    Grind: Medium

    Chemex: The Chemex is an elegant brewing device that extracts only the purest, most flavorful coffee without any bitterness or sediment. Because of the incredible functionality and design, the Chemex, paired with Chemex Bonded Filters, create a pure coffee experience unlike any other.
    Grind: Medium/Coarse

    Coarse Ground: At a coarse grind, coffee is separated into large fragments similar to grained kosher salt.

    French Press: The French Press is a classic and easy way to prepare decadent and smooth coffee and can easily be converted to brew cold coffee. The coffee grounds and water are separated by a fine mesh plunger leaving only fresh brewed coffee after 5 short minutes.
    Grind: Coarse

    Toddy Cold Brew: The Toddy Cold Brew system is a simple and consistent way to extract a delicious and low-acid brew. Oils and fatty acids that would normally settle into hot coffee are eliminated leaving you with a perfectly balanced and smooth cup of iced coffee.
    Grind: Coarse

    I had put off buying either Mexican coffee because the description just didn't sound like what I was looking for. I had bought and loved Mexican coffee in the past so decided to give this a try. Glad I did!!!

    I don't find any of the bitterness in the description, just a rich, mellow brew with the slightest touch of citrus on the finish.

    Alright; but, just alright

    Dark Chiapas is drinkable; but, no aspect jumps out at me - especially in comparison to other FRC single-origin varieties.

    The aroma is modest, and, the flavor is elusive. 'Power and complexity'? I couldn't detect either. 'Pleasantly dry, acidy snap'? I drink it black, however I am still in search of any snappiness.

    We make it in an automatic drip machine. I've tried various grinds and ratios, but have not discovered a sweet-spot after five attempts. After the last several types we tried all had character, this feels like a bit of a miss.

    Again, it's drinkable. There is nothing particularly wrong with it, but unless you're really into Mexican varieties, it offers no reasons to seek it out, either. There are too many other interesting choices at FRC waiting to be tried..... so, go try them.

    • Not for the bud light drinkers!

    This is by far the best I've tasted so far! It makes Starbucks coffee taste like Mc Donald's! The label describes it to a "T"

    Love it!


    good balance of dark flavors, especially smokiness

    I like dark coffees, but not the cigarette flavor that sometimes accompanies dark French roasts, for example. This one is dark and full flavored, with some smoke flavor, but not too much, for my taste.
