About the coffee
Enrique López took over the management of the farm "Chelin" from his father in 2012. The farm is located in Calendaria Loxica. Coffee production has had a strong influence on Enrique's life - his great aunt Angel Peralta Rodriguez started cultivating coffee plants over a century ago. The farm's name is a derivative of his mother's name, Senora Graciela. Jaime López Vertiz - Enrique's father - inspired him himself to take over the family farm. He had dedicated 44 years of his life to coffee until he passed away in 2000.
Enrique López is known as an innovative person, and his farm has been compared to a laboratory where important projects are developed in the areas of cultivation, biochemical fermentation processes, conservation of endangered species, environmental sustainability, soil improvement, improvement of rust resistance of varieties, among others.
One of his priority environmental projects is the program to determine the amount of carbon the farm captures year after year. Since he has been in charge of the farm, many innovative processes to make the cultivation more sustainable or improve the cup profiles of the coffees.
They are experimenting naturally with different processes to find the best molecular structure of the coffee bean according to its own origin and from that point on adequately design the chemical processes to discover new and different profiles, keeping 80% of the origin.
He wants to leave a mark in the country and in the history of coffee, sharing his knowledge so that his Mexican colleagues can achieve an improvement in their production and in their quality of life.
Part of his vision is to guarantee the next generation an ecosystem that will allow them to continue producing high quality coffee while respecting nature through sustainable agriculture.
The production of a specialty coffee is the result of the application of various complex processes, but at "Chelin Farm" the excellent result is attributed to the profiles developed through fermentation and, above all, to the wet mill that guarantees the quality of the coffee year after year, regardless of external factors.
At this point, Enrique López shows that the producer is the one who pushes the coffee to the limit and therefore the most important player in this great chain.

Bloody Good Coffee

Bloody Good Filter
Coffee is a fruit which is naturally acidic and contains many sugars. We roast our filter coffees to bring out this acidity and develop the natural sweetness.
In developing a profile for a filter roast, our roasting team takes a light-handed approach, roasting much more gently than in an espresso roast. Here, the aim is to respect and highlight the natural flavours of the coffee itself, and to let its terroir shine through.
