Contrary to popular belief, we generally find it difficult to produce new blends “on demand”. The best blends happen when a precipitating event causes us to contemplate a new combination of coffees – sometimes it’s a new arrival, or an origin trip. In this case, it was both. Late fall arrivals were starting to inspire Jim as he left for an origin trip to Chiapas, Mexico in late November. Weeks of drinking Mexican coffees in Mexico helped shape his opinion of their potential in espressos, and this blend really has its roots in that trip.
The name is derived from the trip, too. Jim spent his time among Mayan coffee farmers, who have recently become famous (the Mayans, not necessarily the farmers) for the worst Apocalypse in recent memory, 12.21.12. As it happens, this blend was born on that date. The font for the logo is called Apocalypse, by Steve Cloutier.
