After working on the farm, his father’s property, for most of his life, and having received FNC training, Jesus Angel Lopez, Aka Don Jesús, along with his wife and their 12-year-old daughter are now responsible for the quality of the harvest. The farm is tiny, just a single hectare called Llano Redondo, a refreshingly literal name indicating that the farm is on a level plain (Llano) in a round shape (Redondo). The family also grow granadilla (sweet cousin of the passionfruit), corn, and beans, both to consume and for commercial purposes.
Oaxaca is an enigma in many ways but also can produce some of the very best cups in the country. Production here is still overwhelmingly driven by original lines of Bourbon and Typica, including the unique Pluma variety in the southern coastal mountains. With 16 distinct indigenous groups/cultures alone, many of which grow coffee, the region is incredibly diverse from an environmental, climatic, and social perspective. There are so many logistical and cost-of-production challenges here but that’s what excites and drives us to get better and bring these lots to more of our roasting clients and their end consumers. These are vibrant, delicious, sweet, sessionable coffees that seem to disappear from your cup because they go down so easily.
