Swiss Water’s Small Batch Series is a program of limited offerings that features hyper seasonal, highly traceable, and really tasty coffees. 

We’re all familiar with Oaxaca as one of Mexico’s most storied coffee-growing regions, but the work being done within the Pluma Hidalgo sub-region —home to its own variety, Pluma—has shifted in recent years to represent the best of true craft coffee farming.

The longtime province of large estate farmers, Pluma farming has recently shifted primarily into the hands of smallholders who provide the care and attention these plants have needed, out of sheer necessity of their own farms’ survival. With their perseverance has come great reward: beautiful, high-grown coffees with dynamic and captivating flavour profiles.

Swiss Water sourced this coffee from the the Oaxaca region, where business is extremely hands-on, with direct relationships with small-scale producers, as many producers operate without the larger umbrella of cooperatives and associations. This single origin Pluma variety selection from several small farmers in Pluma Hidalgo’s Santa Cruz Ozolotepec is a true celebration of this beautiful heirloom variety, an offshoot of Typica introduced to the region in the mid 1800’s and naturalising itself there.
