The coffee story



Xochiltepec is a community from the Sierra Sur in Oaxaca. Most people are coffee growers in the community. 35 of them decided 4 years ago to join forces and work with Ensambles to access the specialty coffee market. 
Back in 2017 the Ensambles team started advising on cherry selection, post-harvest improvements and implemented lot separation to assess each producer's quality. 
The first year, 140 kgs passed the SCA 84 mark. Today, after 4 years working together, 7,000kgs are passing this score mark. 
The altitude, varietals combined with improved post-harvest practises make of Xochiltepec a beautiful, reliable and repeatable sweet and clean cup.

The process



Careful selection of cherries, floating, 24-48h dry fermentation and sun drying with initial experiment on raised beds.

Quality comment
Algrano
Sweet and pleasant, with distinct notes of milk chocolate and roasted almonds, mild acidity and smooth body.
Grower (Pending)
Those typicas cultivated at 1700-1800 masl provide a caramel, lingering sweetness with back note of camomille. Only the best cupping lots from the producers of the Xochiltepec community were selected to curate this lot.

FAQ


Shipping
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
