Based in the beautiful Lake District, Red Bank Coffee Roasters was founded by ex-lawyer and Londoner Tom, who first realised how amazing coffee could be after visiting Monmouth in London. This rare, Mexican coffee is incredibly clean, sweet and complex, with notes of clementine, honeycomb and pannacotta. Tom has long had an obsession with Oaxaca as one of the world’s centres of food biodiversity. This very remote region is known for its mystic elements, with a strong culture of shamanism and psychoactive mushroom!
The Sierra Mazateca is a mountain range located to the north of Oaxaca City. The region is very remote, hard to access, and is marked by its steep and dramatic topography. It takes its name from the indigenous Mazatec, a Nahualt name that translates as “the deer people”. In their own language, however, the Mazatec refer to themselves as Ha shuta Enima, which means “those who work the hills”. The Mazateca is also known for its more mystic elements, with a strong culture of shamanism and psychoactive mushroom use. It became an unlikely centre for alternative tourism in the 1960s and 70s after a local healer called María Sabina allowed Westerners to participate in the velada healing ritual.
