Mexican coffees are light to medium body with mild acidity and balanced, with delicate fruit and spice overtones. Mexican coffee is moderately priced and thus very popular in blends and as a flavoring base.
Mexico is one of the largest coffee-producing countries in the world, and the largest producer of organic coffee, accounting for 60% of world production in 2000. The vast majority of Mexican coffee, and particularly organic coffee, is grown by small farmers in the southern-most states of Chiapas and Oaxaca. In a great Mexican Coffee, a Chiapas or Oaxaca, you’ll find mild flavor with medium body, and a pleasant, dry, acidy snap. Although not necessarily among the world’s most famous, if a light cup pleases you, these coffees will be quite fulfilling.
