Hailing from the Sierra Mazateca region to the north of Oaxaca City, Eloxochitlán de Florés Magon is an area characterised by dramatic mountainous topography and remote access. Production yields are small, with most producers in the association harvesting less than one bag of coffee per year. Although challenging at times, the climate and altitude also lend themselves to positive cup attributes, and coffees from the Mazaetca number among the most complex and highest quality of Mexican lots.
Vibrant and balanced, Elox is no exception. A washed processed coffee, Elox is fermented for 48 hours before being dried on petates, traditional hand-woven mats.
In the cup we're enjoying the creamy macadamia body, crisp, green apple acidity, and a delicious cacao nib finish.
