Cafeólogo

Cafeólogo is a project founded by Jesús Salazar, focussing mainly on indigenous coffee growers in the area around San Cristobal de las Casas in central Chiapas, the southernmost region of Mexico. San Cristobal is located rather close to the border with Guatemala, and is in fact only around 200 km or about a 5 hour drive from San Marcos Huista in Huehuetenango, where we have purchased several coffees in the past. Starting in 2010, Jesús initially worked with 4 small producers, but soon many producers in the area were curious about the project, and the prices they could be paid for their coffee through their newly found access to the speciality market. To be able to accept so many more farmers into the project, Jesús realised that quality control would be very difficult if each producer was to grow and process their own coffee. So he made it his mission to add value to each group of producers’ work through careful processing, undertaking a Q-processing course and building two community wet mills, Sibactel and San Pedro.

A collaboration with Jesús Salazar’s Cafeólogo project.

Chiapas

Lorenzo Nuñez

Lorenzo Nuñez grows coffee in the highlands of Chiapas, not far from the town of Chilón. He is one of the producers that Cafeólogo have worked with for a longer period of time, and has now started processing his own coffee. The division of labour on the farm is clear, Lorenzo works in the field, and believes that excellent quality varietals are the key to delicious cups. He grows Typica and Bourbon currently, but is exploring new varietals on a small area of the farm, hoping to create new separated lots. Many of the trees on the farm are over 30 years old, so replacing these with fresh plant stock would lead to higher yields in time, and hopefully even better quality. Lorenzo’s son, Pablo, is the mastermind behind the processing that takes place on the farm. Pablo has taken courses together with Jesús, hoping to increase his knowledge on new processing techniques in order to increase the value of his family’s work. For now, he is mastering the traditional processes, such as in this washed lot of Typica and Bourbon. The crisp character of each varietal shines here, with a soft berry character and a crisp black tea finish.

Washed Process

The washed process involves completely removing both the cherry and the mucilage from the outside of the parchment with the use of friction, fermentation and water. After being harvested, the coffee cherry is then sliced open by either a metal or a sharp plastic blade.

The two seeds (also known as beans) are pushed out of the cherry, which leaves the seed with mucilage as their outermost layer. It is essential in the washed process that all mucilage is removed from the seed which leaves only the flavour that developed in the cell structure of the seed prior to processing.
