Mexico NKG BLOOM Tecolotl is grown in Los Altos, a land of mountains, valleys and old-growth forest bordering the Lacondona — the biggest jungle in Mexico, running from Chiapas through Honduras into the Yucatan Peninsula. Tecolotl means owl in Tzeltal, the mother language of the Tzeltales, an indigenous people descended from the Mayan. In Mayan culture, owls are believed to have mystical qualities. The owl created for this coffee's bag is an alebrije — a colorful, fantastical creature, in the Mexican folk art tradition, thought to act as a spirit guide, aiding people in the completion of their spiritual journey. NKG BLOOM Tecolotl is shade grown, under native tree species using sustainable practices. Cherries are washed, fermented and sun-dried. The unique micro-climate, rich soil and elevation yield a complex and delicate cup.
