Nantic means “our mother” in the ancient Mayan language of Tzeltal, and 'our mother' beautifully describes the story behind this wonderfully aromatic coffee. High-grown on the soaring, nutrient-rich soil of Mexico's Chiapas Highlands, this stunning coffee hails from smallholder farms tended and harvested by a group of 225 indigenous women, many of whom are family members and many of whom are the prime or sole income generators for their families. Grown under Por más café, a collection of supply-chain-supported smallholder farmers, the Nantic women range in age 18 to 60+ years with the majority of women (43%) exceeding 50 years of age. Using traditional farming methods, these women agricultural entrepreneurs and heritage holders tend 475 hectares (1,173 acres) to produce exceptional, naturally grown coffee. This lovely cup is medium roasted with gentle acidity, good body, and notes of mild caramel, chocolate, delicate apricot, and a touch of tobacco.
