Fresh From the Roastery :: Mexico Oaxaca Pluma Hidalgo

Posted by Caffè Umbria on

Nestled in the Sierra Madre del Sur mountain range, smallholder farmers near the town of Pluma Hidalgo cultivate this coffee in a very rustic and artisan way, honoring the love of coffee and the land passed down from generation to generation for almost 200 years.

Single Origin Coffee: Mexico Oaxaca Pluma Hidalgo

Pluma Hidalgo is a very small village surrounded by coffee farms and is the capital of coffee country in southern Mexico. This coffee gets its name both from the town, and the featherlike clouds that float amidst the mountains. Most of the farms are small, between one and nine Hectares (one Hectare is approximately 2.5 acres). Each Hectare yields anywhere from two to ten bags of coffee cherries, on average producing 500 pounds annually.

The Pluma coffee plants are Typica, the oldest variety, and produce a very aromatic coffee coveted for its complete flavor profile as a stand-alone single origin, in part due to growing conditions - Shade grown in volcanic soil, under cloud cover using only organic composts of leaves, coffee parchment and fruit.
