The subtleties of our Doce Uvas offering commemorate the traditions Mexico
celebrates at Christmas and New Year's: Twelve grapes for twelve wishes. On New Year's Eve, custom
dictates eating twelve grapes just as the bells toll. Each grape represents a different wish for the
coming year and participating in the ritual is meant to bring you good luck for the New Year. While
the custom originated in Spain, it is widely celebrated in modern-day
With tasting notes of black grape, white grape, and a hint of clove, we felt this washed, varietal blend from smallholder coffee farmers in Patlanalan, Veracruz is perfectly reminiscent of this popular Mexican winter holiday rite.
About This Coffee
Doce Uvas is a most gratifying result from a special initiative that holds the sustainability and elevation of the small scale coffee farmer as its core value. Developing a replicable system for a localized community, consistent taste profiles were achieved across various farms. Strict protocol enabled the qualified selection of the best lots from each individual farmer to be gathered, merged and transformed into this truly impressive offering.
A washed-processed varietal blend from Patlanan, Veracruz, the seeds for this offering were complied from a strictly controlled collaboration of small farm producers.
