Getting product details...

Finca Muxbal is a prime example of the quality to be found in Mexico. Perched right on the border of Guatemala’s San Marcos region and half way up the immense Tacana volcano the farm produces coffee of a clarity and intensity of flavour profile that we believe matches many of it’s well known southern neighbours.
Mother and son Maeggi Rodriguez and Jorge Gallardo manage Finca Muxbal, a farm that has been in the family since 1959. The meticulous care and attention they give to the coffee and processing carries onto social welfare and environmental responsibility - food, shelter and education are provided for all the workers and a section of the farm has been set aside as a nature reserve.

At Artisan Roast the word we think sums this coffee up best is ‘juicy’. Bold, luscious fruits including nectarine, guava and blackcurrant are complimented by a red grape like acidity. It’s very sweet too, and a syrupy honeyed mouth feel keeps the fruit driven mouth-watering nature of this coffee lingering on the finish.
