Mexico Siltepec El Jaguar SHG Dark Roast
Another one of our favourites from Mexico, this Siltepec El jaguar has a relatively low acidity and as such works perfectly in all brew methods, especially if you fancy brewing this as an espresso. It replaces our Finca Aurora, which unfortunately is now out of stock until the latest harvest hits the docks in the early summer.
Siltepec is located in the central part of Chiapas. This coffee comes from the high-altitude area of the Sierra Madre, bordering the biosphere reserve El Trifuno, which is the habitat of an Endemic Bird Area, “El Quetzal.” This ecological region represents 30 percent of the flora in all of Chiapas territory.
The microclimate in this region creates a cloud forest, due the Soconuscu rainforest zone around the Novillero River. The weather is humid with lots of shade, cool conditions at night and excellent soil, which together create a perfect environment for the development of specialty coffee.
Our El Jaguar comes from a group of small producers and is harvested and processed by hand. After harvesting it is de-pulped, fermented and washed before being dried in the sun.

A pleasant blend full of flavour
My all time favourite. I'm ordering for the fourth time!
First time purchaser bought this and the Peru Gonzilla
The Mexican is a gorgeous coffee, strong smooth and chocolatey, very impressed
Coffee was really nice
This is nice. It took a bit of time to get the grind right (needs to be ground quite fine) but produces a good espresso for any time of the day. As always, Pebble & Pine service was very good. I'm not going anywhere else..... no need.
