Overview

Mexico ranks fifth in coffee production. Who the poets have called "the black nectar of white dreams". Coming from a shrub born in Abyssinia (now Ethiopia), it was discovered by chance in the year 1140. Legend has it that a shepherd named Kaldi, intrigued by the strange behavior of his goats, tried the grains of the bush with which his flock seemed to delight , delighted with joy, he went out to realize the discovery of the monks of a nearby convent. There are prepare a brew that the superior threw to the bonfire for its bad taste; however, when they burned, the grains gave off a sublime aroma that gave them the idea of preparing an infusion.

Know More about this tour

The nature of each grain that we test place of origin, plantation and harvest conditions will be explained.

The first to adopt the culture of coffee in Mexico were the indigenous people, who knew how to adapt the marvel of coffee to its traditional cultivation. First we will examine and smell the coffee beans. Then we grind the grains in a mill and the process of preparing the coffee cup to let it rest. Finally with a spoon samples of coffee are taken and with a powerful sip the drink is swallowed to pass it through the palate of the mouth. This process is repeated several times and can detect characteristics such as sweetness, acidity, body, citrus, caramelised and chocolaty flavors. We will also try an ancestral coffee and Mayan coffee.
