Coffee producer from Veracruz wins Cup of Excellence Mexico

Posted by Robbie Lane on June 5, 2014 at 3:42 PM

Adán Altamirano Domínguez, owner of the Estribo coffee farm, won Mexico’s third-ever Cup of Excellence competition in May with a coffee scoring 91.59.

AdanEstribo is located in Veracruz, Mexico’s Zongolica region, which produces about 6 million pounds of coffee annually in an area of 9,836 hectares. The farm’s elevation is between 1,325 and 1,430 meters above sea level, and its variety makeup is Creole (70%), Caturra and Garnica (20%), and Bourbon (5%).

Adán inherited the coffee plantation from his father and has since worked on preserving the natural beauty of the land. The farm includes a natural reservoir as well as many shade species including avocado, liquid amber, and pine trees, creating an ideal setting for coffee cultivation.

Sustainable Harvest® first met Adán during a visit to the Zongolica region in 2012, alongside representatives from the Japanese importer Wataru. Now two years later, Adán continues to produce green coffee of exceeding quality, as seen in his recent win.

Sustainable Harvest® will be offering Adán’s award-winning coffee along with six other micro-lots from Veracruz and Oaxaca shortly. For more information on this coffee and others, please email trade@sustainableharvest.com for cup notes, samples and booking.
