apricot, 'nilla wafer, sweet & lingering
San Vicente Yogondoy is a lush, forested, and remotely located community in the Sierra Sur region of Oaxaca. Their coffee grows under a dense native shade canopy facing the Pacific Ocean to the south and receives a very distinct rainy and dry season with cooling breezes off the ocean.
The Garcia Luna family has organized with extended family members to continue the tradition of maintaining almost 100% Pluma variety. This variety is the local mutation of Typica that thrives in these conditions and has been grown for over 80 years. Several of the farmers are also under the age of 30, an encouraging fact showing the future of coffee farming in this special, unique community.
This is the first time we have ever showcased this unique coffee variety, and we love it for its complex aromatics and for tasting like sweet apricot and vanilla.
This is a limited release coffee, which means the number of times we roast this coffee each week is also limited. Orders may be delayed 1-2 days to ensure freshness, and your coffee will be roasted within 24 hours of when your order was placed (or on Monday, if you place your order after we begin production on Friday).
Running out of coffee is no fun! We've put systems in place to ensure you get the freshest coffee possible, shipped as quickly as possible. Most orders roast and ship the following business day.
