Santiago Atitlán, Mexico
Our newest single origin offering comes from the community of Santiago Atitlán in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. Highwire has featured coffees from Oaxaca before (some of you might remember the San Lucas Zoquiapam from around this time last year) and when it came to tasting selections from this harvest, the Santiago Atitlán jumped off the table. The intense aromatics of this coffee seem more like something you'd find in Kenya. And while the acidity plays a big part in the flavor, it's more tropical than citric, with a creamy body that softens the intensity and elevates the caramel-like sweetness.
