Coffee Release: Planifolia Barrel Aged Mexico Topacio

Introducing a brand new coffee collaboration with Mostra Coffee!
Ingredients drive every step we make and heightening the sensory experience is exactly what we did with this new coffee release. Planifolia Barrel Aged Mexico Topacio is a true celebration of the complexity of this Chiapas grown coffee. We patiently aged unroasted coffee beans in previously filled bourbon barrels that held Planifolia, a rich and luscious barrel-aged stout with a double dose of organic vanilla beans sourced from both Tahiti and Mexico. Just before roasting, we infused it with Tequila infused Mexican vanilla beans to bring forth a pastry element. The final result is a cup of coffee that exhibits notes of Rocky Road ice cream, pie crust, and subtle tobacco – cedar elements.
12 ounce bags of this coffee will be available at all Pure Project tasting rooms starting Thursday, August 27th for $25 each, while supplies last.
More on the Mexico Topacio Coffee:
Topacio SHP EP is grown by small producers in the regions of Jaltenango and Villacorzo Chiapas, Mexico. These small producers hand-pulp their coffee and ferment it in little tanks before sun-drying the beans. Harvest occurs between January and April.
Coffee production in this area is dominated by small producers with an average farm size of 1.5 hectares of Bourbon and Arabic Typica trees. There are several microclimates, with heavy humidity, that contribute to coffees with a bright acidity and nice body.
The growing altitudes between 1,100 and 1,500 meters above sea level are rich in volcanic soil and receive a good combination of sunlight, ideal temperatures and precipitation that provide the essential components for growing Strictly High Grown coffee. Many believe this area is where Mexico’s best coffees can be found.
