In 2010 Jesus Salazar started a project of coffee cultivation involving the Mayan Communities. This project is named Cafeologo and is located in Tzajala, Chiapas. He works with 35 micro-poducers who grow high quality coffee produced under shade of the Mexican primary forest. Jesus specialized in the processing of coffee and supports the farmers on the technical side of the process to create nanolot of high quality. Ten years later his project brings together a coffee shop, a hotel, a quality laboratory, a cupping room, a roaster, a wearhouse and a small factory.
This nanolot comes from the production of Lorenzo Nunez, who produces Bourbon and Typica in the isolated terroir of Tzajala in Chiapas. Lorenzo’s coffee are characterized by extremely clean and well-defined cup profiles. Lorenzo belongs to the Maya Tzotzil ethnic group and with the help of his son Pablo, he wants to develop new varieties. Lorenzo is doing all his stage of production by hand in a traditional way. The only machine he used is a depulper.
This is one of those coffees we tasted and simply had to order! We only have one bag of this coffee so it’s a limited offer.
