Tasting Notes

Our Organic Mexican Select is sourced from farms in Mexico’s classic coffee-growing regions, and it demonstrates convincingly the principle of Terroir, or the influence that the growing region has on the flavor of the bean. It has a lovely, textured body, lush fruit tones, and a spicy cocoa note that’s unique to Mexican coffees. This is a very drinkable cup, and a great introduction to specialty coffees.

Flavor Chart Rating: 88 Points (out of 100)
"Intense aroma with a tightly knit complexity: muted spice, apple, pear, chocolate. In the cup sweet, delicate and balanced, with subtle but distinct chocolate notes and a quietly vibrant acidity."
— Ken Davids, CoffeeReview.com, November 2005

About Green Mountain Coffee®

 

 

A great tasting cup of coffee can give you a whole new perspective. It's a moment to pause, reflect, and reprioritize. That moment is what inspires us to make coffee that benefits everyone it touches. From carefully sourcing and roasting the highest quality beans, to supporting small farms and protecting the environment, we focus on what's important.

That's why we at Green Mountain Coffee® believe a good cup of coffee can change your day... but a great cup of coffee can help change the world.

Notes From Origin

Mexico is one of the larger coffee producing countries in the world, which means that there is a great variety to the beans cultivated in Mexico.

One of the coffees used in this blend comes from Southeastern Mexico, along the Sierra Mountains. Coffee farmers process their beans using their own local wet mills. This process results in a balanced acidity in the coffee, for the process of fermentation and drying are quite immediate to each other. While this organically grown coffee is cultivated in an environmentally friendly manner, its flavor is improved as well. Being shade grown, the coffee plants mature slowly, creating sweeter coffee beans.

This particular coffee comes in part from La Trinidad Cooperative located in the Mountains of Oaxaca. Growing organic, Fair Trade coffee has brought many advantages to the members of this cooperative, their families, and the land this coffee is grown on. For example, the cooperative recently opened two Community Stores to provide low-cost goods to very remote coffee-growing communities. The cooperative also gives farmers 10-20 trees annually to plant among their coffee bushes. These trees shade farmers’ crops, and provide habitat to birds and other wildlife.

        Comments about Green Mountain Coffee 10oz FTO Mexican Select:

        I am so dissappointed. I was hopeful this would be good. But, sadly, after waiting a week for it to arrive in the mail, it smelled and tasted scorched. I use a French Press. So, it was not the preparation method. I've enjoyed other Green Mountain products, but will never buy this one again.

            Comments about Green Mountain Coffee 10oz FTO Mexican Select:

            I brew this at home in my drip coffee maker. I picked it because we had loved the coffee on our Mexican vacation and was hoping this would be close. The aroma is wonderful, slightly sweet, and no bitterness. There is no acidity that comes back on you like some coffee does. The taste is well balanced and has a hint of chocolate. I happily drink this daily and am very bummed when I run out!

              Comments about Green Mountain Coffee 10oz FTO Mexican Select:

              I love this coffee! We had been brewing the Sumatran Reserve as our old standby and exterminating with other brands/roasts here and there, but after trying Mexican Select we feel in love. We tried another brand right after our first bag of MS and what a mistake that was! Now we can't bring ourselves to by anything else.

              Well done Green Mountain!

                          Since G.M. dropped Tanzanian Peaberry a while back, I frantically was looking for its replacement. Upon calling the company, the rep I talked to said she was in the same boat as I, and did several taste test and came up with this coffee. She was RIGHT! Thank you.
                          Id never make it without my coffee. Or, shall we say"Hi, my name is Karen. I am an addict!! (lol)

                              By far, my favorite. There is a delicious complexity of notes in this coffee that is like a harmony in my mouth! A blend of shadow and light, an undercurrent of spicy tang, a whisper of rounded sweetness.
                              Interesting, bright, full, clean finish, low acidity. Perfect drink to usher in the day.
