From our friends at Red Fox Coffee Merchants-

“San Vicente Yogondoy is a lush, densely forested, isolated, and remote community nearby San Agustin Loxicha in the Sierra Sur region of Oaxaca. The steep slopes where coffee is growing under a dense native shade canopy face the Pacific ocean to the south and receive very distinct rainy and dry seasons with cooling breezes off of the Pacific.

The Garcia Luna family has organized with extended family members to deliver impeccably clean parchment. Each producer’s harvest is cupped individually, then blended or separated according to quality. Productivity within the group is relatively high and each farmer has on average 5 hectares, making production of high-quality coffee a more profitable proposition. Our price premium is distinctly known to be the highest offered in this region.

The indigenous Zapotec community still maintains their language and describe the area as the Rio de Abejas (Bees’ River), the translation for Yogondoy in Zapotec. Tellingly, many of the coffee farmers also maintain beehives and produce honey. Many of the farmers in this group have younger coffee trees which were planted within the last five years, and are continuing the tradition of maintaining almost 100% Pluma variety, the local mutation of Typica being grown for over 80 years that thrives in these conditions, soils, and climate. 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.”

A really versitle coffee; in our opinon it works great with any brew method.

    One of my favorite coffees of all time. The flavor profile is truly wonderful. Makes a great latte or americano. Highly recommended, though don’t buy it cause I am worried they will run out again!!
