Cafe Capitán began about 2 years ago, when farmers in the Chiapas region of Mexico broke off from a larger umbrella cooperative to work on their own and gain back more control over the quality that was being cultivated. This new cooperative takes coffees from the pueblos of Comunidad Monterey, Santerita, Laguna del Cofre, Capitan, and Las Pilas.

Over the years, our broker partner Red Fox Coffee Merchants has been doing extraordinary work in Mexico, cultivating relationships with cooperatives, communities, and farmers to export some amazing coffees. This is our first release of the season, and if you're looking for a sweet, balanced, daily drinker: you've found it. 

In the cup, we're tasting notes of amber honey, golden raisin, and brownie.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Will My Order Ship?

We roast Monday through Friday, and most orders ship the next roast day from when they are placed.

The only exception is any pre-order item, which will ship on the date stated on that item's pre-order page.

Do You Have Recommendations For Brewing?

Yes!

First, we recommend a brewing ratio of about 1:17. So whatever your dose of coffee is for a brew (we recommend weighing your coffee in grams), multiply that number by 17, and use that weight of water to brew.

Second, always try to grind your coffee fresh, directly before you brew. This will significantly impact the flavor.

Lastly, and maybe most important, always use the highest quality water you can. Filtered is always best. Coffee is 98.5% water, so the water you use makes a huge difference.

Any other questions? Just drop us a line.

Is ReAnimator Coffee Organic/Fair Trade?

While some of our coffees may happen to be certified organic or fair trade, we do not specifically look for either of these certifications when sourcing coffees, and do not market them as such.

All of our coffees are bought at fixed prices above the c-market, and 99% of the time we are paying higher prices than the Fair Trade Certified price.

Our sourcing goals are always quality and flavor focused, and we buy from producers and importers we trust to provide us with coffee that fits into our ideology.
