Mexico has been a major coffee producer since the 1700s. In more recent years, the popularity of specialty coffee has been trending upwards. La Parroquia de Veracruz is one of the most popular coffee brands in the Mexican specialty coffee scene. As their name would imply, the beans come from Veracruz, Mexico. Veracruz is located on the gulf side of Southern Mexico, north of Oaxaca and northwest of Chiapas. Veracruz coffee is distinguished from the beans of Chiapas and Oaxaca, while still retaining some of the signature Mexican coffee traits. The mountainous terrain of Veracruz provides ideal conditions for the growth of coffee.
What makes Mexican Veracruz Coffee special?
Veracruz coffee retains the typical smooth and mellow attributes of Mexican coffee, but differs in that it often has a more significant body. This is a rich dark roast, with a predominantly nutty flavor. The inherent mellow nature of Mexican coffee leads to a smooth, never bitter cup that can be enjoyed by any coffee drinker. Chocolate notes go hand in hand with the nutty taste in this profile. A balanced brightness serves to distinguish this profile from many. At the end of the day, if you enjoy nut oriented flavor profiles, you'll love this coffee.
