Why we Love this Coffee:
This is the first coffee from Mexico that Superthing has ever carried and we are excited to share it with you. This coffee from Tenejapa was imported by our friends at Falcon Specialty. It is a major crowd pleaser and we’ve been loving it as a filter coffee quite a bit here in the roastery. For lovers of a traditional coffee with a bit of interest brought in by the zippy green apple acidity.
