The Olmo coffee farm is located close to the city of Teocelo in Veracruz – Mexico. Here, the cooler temperatures of the area and the shades cause the coffee beans to mature more slowly, which makes the coffee cherries to be denser and hence have deeper flavors and aromas. Mexican coffee from the state of Veracruz is often distinguished by its nutty flavor, smooth taste, and a brightness with chocolate and vanilla notes.
The farm is named after an endangered local tree species and proudly has several olmos that are more than 100 years old. The Olmo coffee farm combines 3rd generation Mexican coffee growers (lead by Mr. Marcos Aguilar) with locally based partners to maximize the coffee quality and the sustainable impact.
Due to climate change, deforestation, droughts and plant diseases, coffee
is facing environmental challenges globally, and Olmo coffee farm is unique
in its sustainability approach, as its shade grown coffee is processed using
solar panels, organic compost and African raised drying beds & even the C02
impact from transporting the coffee bags is being compensated meticulously
by the Olmo coffee farm through their local fruit tree planting effort.
