We take our sourcing seriously: cupping every coffee and traveling many miles to search out the highest quality bean grown by conscientious, committed farmers.
Where our coffee comes from is only part of the story here at Baja Beans. At the beginning of each coffee season, owner and founder Alec Tidey makes his annual pilgrimage to Mexico’s mainland that is the source of Baja Beans. Deep in the heart of Veracruz’s historical mountain range you will find a mix of small to medium sized coffee farms all continuing a long held tradition. The coffee grows on these staggering landscapes at an altitude range of 2,600-3,900 feet above sea level. The plantation is enriched with organic mulch that is recycled inside the finca. The coffee plants are shade-grown under macadamia nut and pine trees, that along with temperature, moist soil, diversify flavor and aroma of our coffee.
The second half of our story continues when the hand-harvested green beans arrive at our small warehouse in el Pescadero, Baja California Sur, Mexico, where we small batch roast our coffee to perfection in our vintage 1980 12 kilo German Probat roaster.
