Our beans are grown in the lush, fertile volcanic soil of the Cloud Forest in Veracruz, Mexico. Harvested by hand with all natural cultivation methods our roasting is an art that the family-owned 1888 Coffee Estate has been perfecting for decades.
The ultimate premium coffee is derived from the convergence of four factors. No other premium coffee brand in the market has mastered the intersection of all four as 1888 Coffee has.
1. Type of coffee bean.
There are two main types of coffee beans: Arabica and Robusta. Arabica coffee beans are ideally cultivated in a high-altitude environment, grown in fertile volcanic soil, and require high maintenance, ample sunlight, shade and humidity to achieve their unique taste and higher quality. Arabica coffee beans give coffee richer flavors, bolder body and aromas. Alternatively, Robusta beans can grow almost anywhere, their flavor is less complex, and they contain higher levels of caffeine. The finest coffee is produced with 100% pure Arabica beans, as 1888 Coffee is.
2. It’s origin and cultivation process.
The soil, climate, shade and humidity are all factors that determine the richness in flavor, color, and aroma of the coffee. The cultivation method results in a higher quality coffee bean as well. 1888 Coffee is grown in the lush mountains and fertile volcanic soil of the Cloud Forest of Veracruz, Mexico. All-natural methods are used including hand-picked and selected, resulting in the best quality coffee beans available anywhere.
The degree of roasting, temperature and timing determine the flavor and body. Roasting is an art that the family-owned 1888 Coffee Estate has been perfecting for four generations.
1888 Coffee is medium-roasted in small batches, resulting in a medium body coffee, with hints of caramel, almonds and chocolate in the overall flavor. The result is a prime balance of tastes along with mild acidity, resulting in a pleasant drinking experience.
Even the finest coffee cannot survive the test of time. Once the coffee beans are exposed to oxygen through roasting and grinding, the process of oxidation begins, resulting in stale coffee after a period of time. Stale coffee loses its delicate flavors, gets bitter and tastes dull. Airtight containers reduce the exposure to light and oxygen, slowing this process, but ultimately, the coffee will go stale if not consumed. Premium coffee is best enjoyed days after roasting and coffee connoisseurs will pay careful attention to expiration dates.
