A throwback to those good ol' glory days, this coffee is a nod to the past but a bold step into the future. It is uniquely savory and sweet. It is rich in complexity and roasted to highlight notes of toffee, fudge brownie and caramel.
This coffee truly embodies our values at Nostalgia. Itʼs our first direct relationship in Mexico and produced 100% by the incredibly talented women of WPZ in Zongólica, Veracruz. Just as we are proud to be a female-founded company, so too are the women of WPZ, which stands for Women Power Zongólica!
Our roastery is only 30 minutes from the US/Mexico border, so being able to create deep ties with our closest geographical neighbor is so special. Coffee from Mexico has been largely
ignored in the specialty coffee world. The 20 female producers that make up WPZ have changed that notion and we are excited to amplify that message to everyone around the world. In fact, 2022 is the second year in a row in which glory days was rated 92 points by Coffee Review making it one of the best coffees from Mexico ever. Period.
The women who contributed to WPZ are also part of NKG bloom, an initiative of Neumann Kaffee Gruppe (NKG) to ensure the long-term viability of green coffee supplies and provide smallholder farmers with the opportunities and resources they need to run their farms at full potential and enter pathways out of poverty.
We are thrilled to announce that we have also created a long-term partnership with the women of WPZ and have committed to working with them every year going forward.
