Our relationship with Coffee Compass gives us the chance to support communities like the ones in the Oaxaca region (pronounced Wa-ha-ca), in Southern Mexico. In Oaxaca, located along the Pacific coast, there’s a farm nestled in the basin of the Copalita river. The scenery within this region is incredible, the soil conditions are fantastic, and the trees provide a natural canopy of shade that makes it perfect for growing quality coffee. But locals in Oaxaca have witnessed protest, violence and death. Their lives have been marred by destruction.
The community has worked hard to rebuild and heal itself, and in this particular farm, called Aurora, coffee beans are hand-picked and carefully washed. There is a wonderful depth to the coffee that comes from the Aurora farm. It has a smooth body with a chocolatey sweetness and accentuation on the deeper, richer notes. And the sweetest thing of all is that at The Neighbourhood we know that by working with the Aurora farm and Coffee Compass we’re able to help make a real difference. So the next time you’re on the ground floor social space, sipping that cup of coffee from Mexicoco, remember that you’re making a difference, too.
