Mexican Superior Altura
Coffee is one of Mexico's most profitable exports and they are one of our wholesale coffee bean suppliers. About half a million small farmers and their families rely on the crop for their economic survival. The country has tripled its from 1,000,000 to 3,000,000 bags in the last 25 years! Half of the Mexican coffee beans produced are consumed there, partly due to being a large country with a heavy population. This is a standard Mexican coffee bean.
- SHG (Strictly High Grown) specifies that the coffee was grown at an altitude around 1350 meters. Coffee grown at a higher altitude and lower temperature produces a slower maturing fruit and a denser bean; which creates a more desirable specialty cup; this classification is higher than HG.
- EP (European Preparation) specifies that raw beans from wholesale coffee bean suppliers are hand sorted to remove any defective beans and foreign material.
