Las Posadas

Our 2022 Limited Holiday Release is ‘Las Posadas’ Mexican Coffee Blend

What is Las Posadas? It is a special way that Christmas is celebrated in Mexico, other countries in Latin America, as well as parts of Texas and some other places in the United States. From December 16th to the 24th, groups of people go house to house singing Christmas carols and at some point the group gets invited in for holiday treats and festivities. Some treat it as just caroling but the symbolism is actually well thought out and has a deeper religious, or spiritual, meaning.

Although it has religious roots, las posadas had become a tradition for many who are gathering with friends and families, singing songs door to door and sharing food and drinks, all of which can bring neighborhoods and communities together during the holiday season.

The Mexican coffee used for this release are a blend of a Caturra variety, honey processed, bean from Finca La Laja, a family farming and milling group in Veracruz, and a Catimor variety, washed processed, bean from Finca La Chilana, a family farm in Chiapas.

How Much Coffee Should I Order?

Our whole bean coffees come in 12 oz bags. Brewing methods, cup size, and preference all will affect how far it will go, but a 12 oz bag should be about a two-week supply for 1-2 coffee drinkers. You can always increase, decrease, or pause your subscription if needed.

Keep in mind, you want your coffee to be fresh, so don’t order too many bags at once. It’s best to keep your order spaced out so we can deliver you the freshest and best tasting coffee.
