Sitting in a lush forest, intercropped with coffee, bananas, corn, beans, fruit trees, and views of the Pacific Ocean in the distance below, is the Oaxacan coffee growing region known as the zona Pluma. Here, the Sierra Madre del Sur coastal mountain range is peppered with small coffee farms. 

This particular lot comes from 12 families living near the town of Santa Cruz Ozolotepec that cultivate coffee on farms with just a few acres. Each producer harvests and carefully sorts cherries and then depulps, ferments, washes, and dries the coffee using their own micro-mill. They deliver their dried parchment to the family owned export company in Oaxaca called Galguera Gomez, which specializes in preparing traceable Oaxacan lots and paying producers higher incomes for the quality of their coffee.

The dry fragrance is enmeshed with a floral kiwi note, chocolate mouse, and hints of raisin and vanilla cream soda. Fruit hints like berry, golden raisin, and some orange peel bittering.
