In 2018, after studying abroad, Ernesto Pérez returned to Veracuz to join the family coffee business. Only one year after his return, with a new focus on specialty coffee, Finca Fatima was awarded as a top-10 finalist in Mexico’s 2019 Cup of Excellence and more accolades are surely on the horizon for this talented young producer.

Typica Semi-washed: This is a unique and complex coffee with bright citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit complemented by a floral aroma and cooling minty finish. Upon arrival from the fields, the coffee is immediately pulped and then fermented in a sealed anaerobic environment for up to 60 hours. After fermentation, the coffee is briefly submerged in clean water to remove defective floaters, but unlike in Fatima’s fully-washed process, no scrubbing or water pressure is applied. This allows some of the mucilage to remain during drying, adding complexity and sweetness to the final cup.
