Our coffee from Rancho La Victoria grows at 21° North. This is one of the northernmost latitudes where coffee can grow at all. Due to the more northerly location and the resulting (somewhat) cooler climate, the cherries also take a little longer to ripen than green coffee from warmer regions.
The coffee plants are raised by hand and grow in the natural shade of various trees in their environment. This naturally regulates the supply of humidity and sunlight. They grow protected for 3 years before they are harvested for the first time. Harvesting and selection of the coffee cherries is done exclusively by hand. Thus, only the dark red, ripe coffee cherries are picked. This greatly enhances the quality of the green coffee and also ensures that the plants are not injured during harvesting. The special technique of harvesting and preparation is passed down from generation to generation within the family.
A nice gesture: part of the high-quality coffee harvest remains in the country and is given to the families who live and work on the ranch. So they can roast their coffee themselves and enjoy it all year round.
Our Mexican bean is truly muy rico - and rich with flavors of chocolate, sweet dried fruits and rich notes of marzipan.Depending on how it's prepared, our Latina bean swings its hips to either one flavor or the other. Simply mexzellent - a sip of the Caribbean in the middle of Tyrol.
No flavors added
Sweet fruits, chocolate and marzipan in coffee? Yes, and all naturally! More than 800 natural flavors can be found in coffee, without any additives. They are created by a wide variety of factors, such as the type of coffee, the conditions under which it is grown, its processing and roasting, and finally, you can also influence the variety of aromas in your coffee by the way it is prepared.
Coffee from Mexico
Organic coffee from Mexico
Mexico is a pioneer in the cultivation of organic coffee. The coffee farmers have a high awareness of their resources and grow the coffee using ecological methods in the most environmentally friendly way possible. In addition to careful manual labor, natural processing and drying, Mexican coffee farmers also use bees for natural pest control, for example.
BIO coffee by unbound
From the very beginning, we at unbound coffee roasters have been careful to buy from small farms under fair conditions. With our specially developed trace-back-to-farm seal, it is possible for us to determine the exact origin of our beans and to always be informed about cultivation and working conditions on site. Nevertheless, the idea of including a certified organic coffee in our product range never really left us...
In the end, it took us three full years to find organic coffees of our desired quality standard and many more hours to perfect their roasting.
Hand roasted in Tyrol
With special care, your roast master Cati and boss Flo take care of the selection of the green coffee and its roasting with their own hands. For the packaging of the coffee, the Lebenshilfe Tirol actively supports us. In the 15kg drum roaster, the beans are gently roasted to the optimal degree with the latest roasting software from Cropster and thus develop their full aroma.
In our show roastery in Wattens in Tyrol, everyone is welcome to look over their shoulder as they roast, or to taste their way through the range to find the perfect coffee for home.

Preparation methods differ in the degree of grinding.
This plays a very big role for the taste. We want our coffee to taste perfect. Therefore, you can choose the grind accordingly.
Coffee grinder owners (congratulations!) or fully automatic machine owners please choose "whole bean"!
If you choose ground for portafilter , feel free to use the comment function during the order and specify your machine. Even better, of course, is to grind it yourself. Electric and hand grinders can be found at the accessories.
