Considered an ancestral variety, characterized by its deep chocolate fragrance and balanced acidity.
The Apaneca – Ilamatepec region is a beautiful expanse of volcanoes, swathes of forests, protected wilderness, and coffee farms. The soils are rich with volcanic material and the numerous ecosystems house a diverse array of flora and fauna – a truly ideal place to grow coffee.
This pristine region is home to Finca Palin, the third-generation coffee farm owned and managed by Carolina Padilla, outside of the town of Tacuba. The farm was first acquired in the early 1900s and was passed down from generation to generation. Carolina’s father passed away in 2010, and she has delved deep into the world of coffee – utilizing both her family’s traditional practices in addition to newer modern processing methods.
