Mexico Pluma Finca La Cabaña
This week's big premier is coffee from the Oaxaca region of Mexico. It's outrageously delicious. The farm on which this coffee is grown also grows vanilla orchids - you know, vanilla beans! Mexico is where vanilla originated. I thought that was an interesting fact to share with you.
So, let's drink coffee, shall we? In the nose, I'm getting notes of walnut, mulled cider and fresh cut wood. I'm thinking about curling up by the fire already! In the cup, the body is Big, Bold, and Sweet! Some notes of orange and cocoa. The finish is stunning: Full mouth feel on this one, more cocoa, and the tiniest hint of a fine barrel aged whiskey. This is an exceptionally smooth drinker - I think it's going to become a favorite for many of you. You fans of low acid coffees will especially enjoy this mellow cup, so give it a try soon.
