The average producer in Oaxaca will work on several small coffee fields around the village they live in. Coffee production is largely a communal affair, with parcels of land shared and tended as a collective by the village rather than dominated by larger farming entities like in countries such as Brazil. A recent agricultural census counted 515,000 producers, 85% of whom were indigenous Mexicans and 95% cultivated fewer than three hectares.
Oaxaca is the least technologically advanced of Mexico's coffee producing regions, with many producers eschewing modernisation in favour of traditional methods. Many of the varieties grown in the region are traditional for the region, with Pluma Hidalgo being one of them. Pluma Hidalgo is 19th-century offshoot of the Typica grown by displaced indigenous farmers in the mid-1800s. The variety has become so important to the coffee producers in the region there are efforts underway to obtain Denomination of Origin status for Oaxacan Pluma Hidalgo.

We've been big fans of Mexican coffee for many years now after tasting some incredible examples about 10 years ago from a coffee roaster in the US. Mexican coffee doesn't have the high profile of other origins, but in our view this is unfair! This coffee is a great example of what Mexico has to offer - sweet, a little floral while maintaining a beautifully balanced complexity.

Farmgate price isn't always an accurate indicator of how much a farmer earns for their coffee, as different systems are used throughout the world to determine how much to pay the farmer. For example, in some origins the farmer is paid for the cherry, prior to processing; while other origins the farmer will be paid based on parchment.
Commodity price is based off the commodity price of coffee on the date of purchase.
Now this is a big one for me personally as I’ve never had coffee from Mexico, unless you count the stuff they use to make Kahlua that goes into my White Russians. And what an amazing first that is! Fantastic balance of sweetness and acidity that made me think of (and crave) rhubarb pie, with a silky body and heaps of milk chocolate in the finish. There’s something about this coffee that makes me consider it perfect for Colombian coffee lovers.
