October's coffee of the month is produced by Alejandro Martinez at his farm Finca San Alfonso. His family has been producing coffee in Coatepec, Veracruz since the mid 19th century but the 180 hectares farm was largely abandoned during the 1980s.
Alejandro decided to reactivate the farm a few years ago, renovating it with new hybrid varietals that are resistant to disease. We tasted a few of them this year through our friends at Ensambles Cafes Mexicanos (the exporter & importer) and the Marsellesa was our favourite one. The cup is very sweet (think dark brown sugar) and also displays lovely dried fruit flavours. A great companion for these chilly autumn mornings.
