ABOUT THE COFFEE

Paula Marín Zaragoza runs Finca Llano Encino, which bears the name of a common tree in Mexico intricately linked to the presence of indigenous groups, who take advantage of this tree by preparing fresh food (acorn oak) or to make rugs, art, fodder, among other uses. Paulina’s farm has many of these trees in the coffee plantation and in the region. As an independent producer she works with her son, who helps with harvest and drying.

The farm is in San Lucas Zoquiapán, and here they focus on processing washed coffee, carrying out a 22-hour fermentation. Paula has been in coffee production for 25 years, and 3 years ago she started selling her coffee as a specialty. Initially, her relationship with coffee began to financially support her family, and for all these years she has only planted and harvested the Typica variety. During the non-harvest months, she grows corn as a second source of income.

To date, Paula is proud to see her coffee is valued for its quality, and how this reflects on the payments she receives. Currently, one of the challenges she has on the farm is controlling rust and, in the future, she plans to continue planting more Typica trees. Paulina is focusing now on producing better quality and improving her processes. She hopes to establish long-lasting relationships with roasters and customers.

        When will I receive my coffee?

        Tracking services are provided and you will receive your tracking number once we dispatch your order.

        Parcel Post by AustPost normally takes under 6 business days and Express Post by AustPost normally under 3 business days.

        Upon receiving your order, we generally send your order out within two business days as we aim for you to have the freshest roast possible.

        We do have roast schedule's and some orders may be delayed waiting for those roast days - we will let you know if there's any lengthy delays.

        Please allow extra time over public holidays or during major holiday periods and weekends.

        Place your order, then give us some time to roast and pack for you (usually less than two business days).

        Once received ready for pickup notification, come in, check in, and say hi to either Matty or Po.

        Can you grind my coffee?

        Sorry, we sell whole beans only.

         
        The reason being is that pre-grinding freshly roasted coffee means that it affects the integrity of the coffee and this makes the coffee expire a lot faster. It's like having artisan bread being pre-sliced or a piece of fruit being left out in the sun!

        I have other questions

        Send us your queries from our website "chat with us" function, our roasters Matty & Po will get back to you as soon as possible, if they are not online, you will get an email response.
