Our Mexico Rancho San Francisco is a Vournas Coffee exclusive and perhaps one of the most underrated and undervalued coffees in all Central America. The “Rancho” as we call it is Strictly High Grown (SHG) by third generation farmers, Delmar and Fernando Moreno Guillen on their family estate in the mountains of Chiapas. The farm utilizes a significant amount of natural shade trees, and while not certified organic, it is naturally grown and processed without chemical fertilizers. Our Mexico Rancho San Francisco is comprised of mostly Typica and Bourbon varieties, but there are a few Caturra trees still producing in some areas of the farm.
Medium body, medium acidity, lemon sweetness with vanilla and slight hints of peach.
The Guillen family’s Mexico Rancho San Francisco has become one of our marquis staple coffees ever since we first began offering it over 14 years ago. Overall this is one of the most versatile coffees around—it can be roasted across the spectrum, blended, or enjoyed as solo cup or single origin espresso. The beans are relatively softer than other high grown centrals and develop a bit faster in the roast, coming out looking nice and BIG!
Chiapas is the southernmost region in Mexico, sharing a border with Guatemala to the west, and Oaxaca to the east. It is well suited to produce an almost “Guatemala-esque” profile; medium body, medium acidity (although not as much as a Guatemala Huehuetenango), a nice oaky, nuttiness and a hint of spice.
