Background: 
Oaxaca is a state in the South of Mexico that is historically and culturally important due to the very high ratio of indigenous Mexicans originating from several tribes but predominantly the Zapotecs and Mixtecs. Most Oaxaqueños can speak at least one native indigenous language. The tropical regions of Oaxaca produce consistently great coffees with altitudes of over 2000masl and, with many long-extinct volcanoes, this area is blessed with very rich soil.

The people of Oaxaca depend strongly on agriculture and are a major producer of grain, agave, sugar cane, mango, peanuts and maize as well as livestock which occupies 32% of the Oaxaca state. Moreover, Oaxaca ranks as one of the top 3 largest coffee producing regions in Mexico, where over 84 thousand farmers are responsible for at least 20% of all the coffee produced in Mexico.

We were struck by the excellent balance between body and sweetness that Oaxaca delivers which persists long in the cup before giving way to a very pleasant aftertaste.
