Our Take

Mexican coffee is pretty diverse in flavor profiles, and overall, this is a solid entry for the first Mexican coffee we’ve tried.

Upon sniffing the beans, smells were reminiscent of the peanut butter in those cheap sandwich crackers, a faint Cheez-It smell to go along with it, followed by a mild caramel, chocolatey scent.

There were lots of subtly familiar pleasant scents.

The first flavor hit was pretty citrusy, preceding a sweeter, creamier finish as an espresso shot.

This coffee had playfully mild darkness that worked nicely with the lemon-like acid.

It was also great with oat milk, which accentuated the creamy, nutty flavors but still allowed the brightness to shine through.

We would undoubtedly try Coffee Bella Vista Women's Group - Chiapas, Mexico again and look forward to other coffees from Mother Tongue Coffee.
