About the coffee

This coffee comes from small farmers in Yajalón, Mexico. Mexico is currently one of the ten largest coffee producers in the world. The country produces a wide range of coffee varieties in its regions.

The cherries are picked when ripe, de-pulped and fermented between 12-17 hours. They are then washed and dried in the sun on the farmers' farms.

When we tested the coffee, we realised that it had more than earned its place in the advent calendar: We at 19grams taste a full-bodied cup with notes of fruity orange, sweet biscuit and a creamy chocolatey finish in the mouth.

About the farm

Organic farming at Yajalon is done in the semi-shade of native trees. As an organic producer group, cherry coffee pulp, dry leaves and wood ash are used as fertiliser. The Tulijá Tzeltal Cholhat region has high biodiversity with indigenous fauna including hummingbirds, anteaters, ocelots and saraguatos (black howler monkeys). Cajpe (coffee in the Tzeltal language) is the most important industry in the communities and is the main link to international markets. Coffee is the main source of income here, but is often grown along with staple crops such as maize, beans and hot chillies.

Cultivation

Cultivated with love by great farmers. 100% Arabica coffee, harvested when ripe and carefully processed. Sustainable and fairly traded.

Packaging

The 19grams capsule advent calendar is 100% recyclable and made from 100% recyclable materials. Even the capsules are compostable.

It doesn't get any greener than this!

Brewing

Our capsules contain 7g of coffee - that's a little more than commercial capsules from other suppliers like Nespresso. Therefore, use a little more water when brewing - like a lungo.

Bloody Good Advent

Since 8 years we roast the unique Coffee Advent Calendar. Now finally capsule compatible.
