Chiapas is the southernmost state in Mexico, at the Guatemalan border. The coffees are distinct from the Oaxaca Plumas and Coatepec coffees: they are a little brighter, sweeter, and bear some resemblance to the Huehuetenango coffees of Guatemala. Oaxaca is my other favorite Mexican origin, but the really good Chiapas coffees like this one have been consistently excellent, are a brighter and livelier cup. Many of the coffees from Chiapas are from small farms, cooperatively wet-milled and sold. We have offered the UDEPOM coop Chiapas for years. (UDEPOM, PROISH ... not the greatest names in the world. Proish? Sorta Pro? It's not the oddest coop name I have heard, or longest (Fedecocagua is up there for that award). Biut besides an early lot we had this season, the quality was up and down. SO we looked around and this Prosih organic-certified Chiapas landed on the cupping table, and it was classic Chiapas cup character. In fact, this is the first time we have selected a Proish Coop coffee in blind cupping, mainly because it is the first time it has broken the 84 point ceiling on the cupping table. This cup has a very attractive, clean fruited character from start to finish. In the dry fragrance, there is a mild coffee cherry and coffee floral scent, and hazelnut roast tones (C+ roast). Adding the hot water to brew, and wet aromatics of tropical fruit, cane sugar. In the cup the fruit has a mango sweetness, turning to peach-apricot nectar in the finish.
