Coffee Background

New beginnings

This lot comes from a new sourcing partner for Royal called APG Coffee, located in Veracruz, Mexico.  APG is not new to coffee exporting.  Rather, it was founded more than 30 years ago by Antonio Perez Galvan, hence the initials APG that form the name of the company.  But things are changing at APG thanks to a pair of great grandchildren, Ernesto Perez and his sister Givette who have created strategies for lot separation to bring forward specialty lots. And Royal is pleased to be the beneficiary of some amazing coffee from the Veracruz region.

Sourcing details

This particular lot comes from a 50 acre farm called Finca Fatima located in Coatepec, Veracruz, which is owned by Ernesto and Givette’s grandmother, Genoveva Perez Redondo.  There are no secrets about the quality of the coffee produced here, since Finca Fatima has an impressive 10th place finish in the 2019 Cup of Excellence.

Processing Details

This natural processed lot begins with meticulous cherry selection of Marsellesa varietal and floating to remove underripe and damaged coffee before slowly drying on raised beds.  The dried coffee is stored in Grainpro cocoons until it is time to mill.  The milling and preparation is done at the APG dry mill, meaning the coffee enjoys personal care from farm to export.  The APG dry mill is also recognized for its attention towards preparing specialty lots and was selected to mill the 2022 Cup of Excellent winning lots.
