Cherry Babka

Cherry Babka

Cherry Babka is Elm’s first official holiday coffee, for sharing with your friends and family during this special time of year. We’ve long loved Mexican coffees for their approachable and sweet character that pairs wonderfully with food, and often informally recommended them as a great option during the holidays. Now we’ve fully committed, releasing this wonderful single origin coffee from Enrique Ambrosio in Oaxaca, and naming it after our favorite holiday treat. And just like the name suggests, it tastes like chocolate, cherry, and baking spices.

Enrique’s farm is located in San Vicente Yogondoy. a lush, densely forested, isolated, and remote community near San Agustin Loxicha in the Sierra Sur region of Oaxaca. The steep slopes where coffee grows under a dense native shade canopy face the Pacific ocean to the south, and receive very distinct rainy and dry seasons with cooling breezes off of the Pacific. The indigenous Zapotec community still maintains their language and describe the area as the Rio de Abejas (Bees’ River), the translation for Yogondoy in Zapotec. Tellingly, many of the coffee farmers also maintain beehives and produce honey. Many of the farmers in this area have younger coffee trees which were planted within the last five years, and are continuing the tradition of maintaining almost 100% Pluma variety, the local mutation of Typica grown for over 80 years that thrives in these conditions, soils, and climate.
