In the local dialect, Muxbal means "place surrounded by clouds". The name chosen for this truly unique farm that stands proudly on the slopes of the active Tacana volcano, could not be more adequate.
The farm is run by mother and son, Maeggi Rodriguez and Jorge Gallardo and was bought in 1959 by Maeggi's father, Don Enrique, a pioneer of his time who introduced three key principles within the Finca Muxbal that remain as important today as the they were then: social responsibility, environmental sustainability and the production of top quality coffee.
The extraordinarily complex quality of this coffee is also given to the altitude of 1,600 meters above sea level, the rich and fertile volcanic soils and the meticulous care and attention that Maeggi and Jorge take in all aspects of harvesting and processing.
This coffee is made from Bourbon, Catuai Caturra, Mundo Nuovo varieties and is processed with the washed method. It's also Rainforrest Alliance RFA certified.
A very balanced cup of coffee, with good sweetness, a soft body and notes of malt, chocolate and caramel. This microlot received 83 points by the SCA protocol.
