Local, small batch roasted, veteran owned, Model Citizen Coffee Company brings to you a Mexican coffee from the South Sierra Madre Mountain range. Mexican Chiapas coffees are known for their light delicate flavor and a bright acidity snap which means this coffee isn't flat but bright in taste. It features fruity and nutty notes, but not overpowering. The aroma is fresh and delicate. The body is medium, meaning it isn’t watery, nor is it thick or syrupy. This is a medium roast.
The mountains offer the necessary altitude and volcanic soil for exceptional coffee production. This coffee comes from Mario Santiz Lopez, a second-generation coffee farmer and owner of Finca Vista Hermosa. A small 2.5 hectare farm in the Altos region of Chiapas.
Mario Lopez and his family are hardworking having farmed their estate for decades, and with each year they have overcome the obstacles of coffee production.
