20·21 PANAMA POSSE
FLEET UPDATE 2021-01-30

 
We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds. - Aristotle Onassis

The inevitable south bound migration of the Panama Posse              

The inevitable south bound migration - here is an impromptu gathering at Marina Chiapas with 10 Panama Posse vessels on the docks

Congrats to all for a safe passage across the Tehuantepec

BURGEE SIGHTINGS 

Welcome to the Panama Posse SY SUR 

 

 

Greetings Panama Posse Voyagers 

We're a few months into this 20-21 season and while it’s been wonderful and inspiring to follow your adventures we would love to gather more video stories so we can share them at the end of the season in a longer, compilation video.

 

We invite, encourage and politely request that you share more of your journey via video.

The great news is  you are carrying a professional video camera right in your pocket,
yup your cellphone!

All we are asking is that you take a moment and record a quick video journal that includes:

 

  • Your name & vessel name
  • Where you currently are & which route you have been on
  • Where your are heading this season ?

 

What to share:

  •     Stories of places you visited
  •     Adventures you have had or Misadventures you had to overcome
  •     Did something break that you had to fix
  •     Have you met anyone unforgettable
  •     Tasted any incredible food or beverage 

 

Please turn your camera/phone horizontal when you make the video and perhaps someone can film you vs a selfie…

Please send any additional photos of videos that compliment the stories you share and remember to make a mark.

When you are ready to upload email us at news@panamamposse.com and we'll send you an upload link.

Mr. Fix is Panama Posse’s documentary, video producer 

With over 21 years experience in all facets of producing live events, video, film including sports, concerts, entertainment, fashion, corporate, political and non-profit functions.

FOCUS ON WEATHER 

FOCUS ON WEATHER typical areas for gale conditions  
 

Maritime Climatology

Pilot Charts

depict averages in prevailing winds and currents, air and sea temperatures, wave heights,  visibility, barometric pressure, and weather conditions at different times of the year and is divided into 12 months

 

The information used to compile these averages was obtained from oceanographic and meteorologic observations over many decades during the late 18th and 19th centuries.

 

The charts are intended to aid the mariner in selecting the fastest and safest ocean and coastal routes with regards to the expected weather and ocean conditions. 
 

Pacific Coast Central America Pilot Charts

Pilot Charts are focused on cruising conditions, there is a diagram for every month of the year for each section. They are on the Panama Posse site under each country example https://panamaposse.com/colombia
colombia pilot charts

Every one of these maritime areas have a graph for every month. You can in this way utilize the graph to find out about the breezes and flows in every month.  Example Prevailing weather in  Colombia in January

PANAMA POSSE <-> CREW 

 

1) Please note that you are responsible for your CREW

2) You are also responsible for REPATRIATION and CLEARING FEES

3) We strongly consider a “flight home” deposit – typical last minute tickets are $$$$  

4) Each CREW will have answered our initial questions but we do not know if these responses are truthful.

5) If anything goes wrong onboard, the buck stops with you. As captain, you are responsible for the total operation of the yacht including safety of crew, yacht and environment.

6) You are responsible for the conduct of the crew as well. And, of course, you are the navigator.

 

If you would like to receive CREW resumes please notify the Panama Posse via email and we will forward you CREW seeking vessel information >>

🇲🇽 LA RUTA DEL CAFE

🇲🇽  LA RUTA DEL CAFE, TAPACHULA, CHIAPAS, MEXICO


To head out on this day trip leave early from marina Chiapas with Miguel Angel of Discovery Tours+52 962 133 6820 toursdiscoverchiapas@hotmail.com

The coffee production in Mexico is the world's 8th largest  and is mainly concentrated to the south central to southern regions of the country. The coffee is mainly Arabica, and lately Robusta which grows particularly well in the coastal region of Soconusco, Chiapas, near the border of Guatemala.

Railroad Mapa of Chiapas

At the end of the 18th century, coffee came to Mexico from the Antilles, but was not exported in great quantities until the 1870s. During the 1980s, coffee became the country's most valuable export crop. Today Mexico is the largest source of U.S. coffee imports. 


The Highlands

Once a coffee plant is mature, it will produce flowers; this normally happens shortly after heavy rainfall. And then, after the flowers, comes the cherries.


Traditional coffee drying in the HIGHLANDS

Selectively picked

Only the ripe cherries are harvested and they are picked individually by hand. Pickers rotate among the trees every eight to ten days, choosing only the cherries which are at the peak of ripeness. It usually takes two to four years after planting for a coffee plant to produce coffee beans that are ripe enough to harvest. The plant eventually grows small white blossoms that drop and are replaced by green berries. These green berries will become a deep red color as they ripen. It takes about 9 months for the green cherries to reach their deepest red color. Because this kind of harvest is labor-intensive, and thus more costly, it is used primarily to harvest the finer arabica beans.
Workers sorting and pulping coffee beans in Guatemala

The laborers who pick coffee by hand receive payment by the basketful. As of 2003, payment per basket is between US$1.00 to $10 with the overwhelming majority of the laborers receiving payment at the lower end. An experienced coffee picker can collect up to six or seven baskets a day. Depending on the grower, coffee pickers are sometimes specifically instructed to not pick green coffee berries since the seeds in the berries are not fully formed or mature. This discernment typically only occurs with growers who harvest for higher end/specialty coffee where the pickers are paid better for their labor. Lots including unripe coffee fruit are often used to produce cheaper mass consumer coffee beans, which are characterized by a displeasingly bitter/astringent flavor and a sharp odor. Red berries, with their higher aromatic oil and lower organic acid content, are more fragrant, smooth, and mellow. As such, coffee picking is one of the most important stages in coffee production.

FINCA HAMBURGO >>

The sun rises over the Chiapas mountains  and the jungle around the Tacaná volcano awake. The area of ​​the Soconusco heights was totally wild, unknown and without having been explored before by man. There are no pyramids or ruins of ancient civilizations. 1,151km away, the world was very different and contrasting. President Porfirio Díaz was in the National Palace of Mexico City working on major structural reforms for the country, with the aim of developing and innovating the country's economy. Díaz had a vision of a prosperous Mexico and was not satisfied with the way companies of that time performed. For this reason, he decided to invite entrepreneurs from then first world economies which he aspired for Mexico to advance. These invitations were sent mainly through embassies and churches, which were answered by Italians, French, English and Germans, to name a few.

 

 


One cold January morning, Arthur Erich Edelmann, his wife Doris, and seven other colleagues set sail from Hamburg, Germany, all from Perleberg, a small town an hour and a half from Berlin. Erich had a coffee machinery factory in his hometown, owned by his family, which was facing financial problems at the time it received the invitation from the Mexican government. What did you feel when you read that letter? What would you have thought to take a risk, abandon your business, your city, your people, your country, your language to start from scratch in a place so far away, so different in culture, language, nature and climate? A place that seemed like a different world. That is a story that we do not know and perhaps we never will.



Erich traveled for three weeks across the Atlantic until he arrived at the Port of Veracruz, where he took a horse-driven cart with his people to go to Soconusco, Chiapas. To the wild and untouched lands that he and his family would call home.

Before arriving in Mexico, we suppose that Erich had to have read all the information available about Chiapas, about Mexico and specialized in its culture, its people, language, nature, its history. However, there was nothing that could have prepared him for the intensity of his new life.

Erich, Doris and their people arrived in Huixtla, a small village with some houses built in adobe and palm trees, inhabited by friendly indigenous families who gave them the mules and human capital necessary to reach their final destination. From there, it took them another 8 hours to be able to transport along the newly created dirt roads, which looked like tunnels through the dense jungle. On their way they could observe the Tacaná, a volcano whose eruptions transformed the land around it into a fertile paradise.

With the help of workers from San Cristóbal, San Juan Chamula and Guatemala, Erich and his team of architects and engineers began to harmonize the land, build the first houses for the workers, the mill, roads. Erich and Doris lived for 11 years in one of these simple houses, couldn't afford a bigger house, not yet. The priority was to prepare the land, build all the necessary infrastructure to work, keep people working, provide money and work, houses and food. The priority was its people, the priority was coffee.

They put a lot of work into investing in this long-term project, so far from home, a lot of determination and hope, a great risk and a gamble. All that work, all those years, until finally: the first harvest and the start of Finca Hamburgo.

Grading is the process of categorizing coffee beans by various criteria such as size of the bean, where and at what altitude it was grown, how it was prepared and picked, and how good it tastes (cup quality). Coffees also may be graded by the number of imperfections (broken, under-ripe, or otherwise defective beans; pebbles; sticks; etc.) per sample. For the finest coffees, origin of the beans (farm or estate, region, cooperative) is especially important. Growers of premium estate or cooperative coffees may impose a level of quality control that goes well beyond conventionally defined grading criteria, as this allows their coffee to command the higher price that goes with recognition of consistent quality.

Wet process

In the 'Wet process', the fruit covering the seeds/beans is removed before they are dried. Coffee processed by the wet method is called wet processed or washed coffee. The wet method requires the use of specific equipment and substantial quantities of water.

The coffee cherries are sorted by immersion in water. Bad or unripe fruit will float and the good ripe fruit will sink. The skin of the cherry and some of the pulp is removed by pressing the fruit by machine in water through a screen. The bean will still have a significant amount of the pulp clinging to it that needs to be removed. This is done either by the classic ferment-and-wash method or a newer procedure variously called machine-assisted wet processing, aquapulping or mechanical demucilaging:
Sorting coffee in water

In the ferment-and-wash method of wet processing, the remainder of the pulp is removed by breaking down the cellulose by fermenting the beans with microbes and then washing them with large amounts of water. Fermentation can be done with extra water or, in "Dry Fermentation", in the fruit's own juices only.

The fermentation process has to be carefully monitored to ensure that the coffee doesn't acquire undesirable, sour flavors. For most coffees, mucilage removal through fermentation takes between 8 and 36 hours, depending on the temperature, thickness of the mucilage layer, and concentration of the enzymes. The end of the fermentation is assessed by feel, as the parchment surrounding the beans loses its slimy texture and acquires a rougher "pebbly" feel. When the fermentation is complete, the coffee is thoroughly washed with clean water in tanks or in special washing machines.

In machine-assisted wet processing, fermentation is not used to separate the bean from the remainder of the pulp; rather, this is done through mechanical scrubbing. This process can cut down on water use and pollution since ferment and wash water stinks. In addition, removing mucilage by machine is easier and more predictable than removing it by fermenting and washing. However, by eliminating the fermentation step and prematurely separating fruit and bean, mechanical demucilaging can remove an important tool that mill operators have of influencing coffee flavor. Furthermore, the ecological criticism of the ferment-and-wash method increasingly has become moot, since a combination of low-water equipment plus settling tanks allows conscientious mill operators to carry out fermentation with limited pollution.[5] The downside in using a machine assisted process or "semi-wash" is a high chance of the beans being chipped or damaged. The damaged beans are more prominent on lower altitude grown beans and certain varietals with pourous features.

Any wet processing of coffee produces coffee wastewater which can be a pollutant. Ecologically sensitive farms reprocess the wastewater along with the shell and mucilage as compost to be used in soil fertilization programs. The amount of water used in processing can vary, but most often is used in a 1 to 1 ratio.

After the pulp has been removed what is left is the bean surrounded by two additional layers, the silver skin and the parchment. The beans must be dried to a water content of about 10% before they are stable. Coffee beans can be dried in the sun or by machine but in most cases it is dried in the sun to 12-13% moisture and brought down to 10% by machine. Drying entirely by machine is normally only done where space is at a premium or the humidity is too high for the beans to dry before mildewing.
 

When dried in the sun coffee is most often spread out in rows on large patios where it needs to be raked every six hours to promote even drying and prevent the growth of mildew. Some coffee is dried on large raised tables where the coffee is turned by hand. Drying coffee this way has the advantage of allowing air to circulate better around the beans promoting more even drying but increases cost and labor significantly.

After the drying process the parchment skin or pergamino is thoroughly dry and crumbly, and easily removed in the hulling process. Coffee occasionally is sold and shipped in parchment or en pergamino, but most often a machine called a huller is used to crunch off the parchment skin before the beans are shipped


The final steps in coffee processing involve removing the last layers of dry skin and remaining fruit residue from the now-dry coffee, and cleaning and sorting it. These steps are often called dry milling to distinguish them from the steps that take place before drying, which collectively are called wet milling.

Most fine coffee goes through a battery of machines that sort the coffee by the density of bean and by bean size, all the while removing sticks, rocks, nails, and miscellaneous debris that may have become mixed with the coffee during drying. First machines blow the beans into the air; those that fall into bins closest to the air source are heaviest and biggest; the lightest (and likely defective) beans plus chaff are blown in the farthest bin. Other machines shake the beans through a series of sieves, sorting them by size. Finally, a machine called a gravity separator shakes the sized beans on a tilted table, so that the heaviest, densest and best vibrate to one side of the pulsating table, and the lightest to the other.
Ethiopian women sort coffee beans at a long table.

The final step in the cleaning and sorting procedure is called color sorting, or separating defective beans from sound beans on the basis of color rather than density or size. Color sorting is the trickiest and perhaps most important of all the steps in sorting and cleaning. With most high-quality coffees color sorting is done in the simplest possible way: by hand. Teams of workers pick discolored and other defective beans from the sound beans. The very best coffees may be hand-cleaned twice (double picked) or even three times (triple picked). Coffee that has been cleaned by hand is usually called European preparation; most specialty coffees have been cleaned and sorted in this way.[5]

Color sorting can also be done by machines. Streams of beans fall rapidly, one at a time, past sensors that are set according to parameters that identify defective beans by value (dark to light) or by color. A tiny, decisive puff of compressed air pops each defective bean out of the stream of sound beans the instant the machine detects an anomaly. However, these machines are currently not used widely in the coffee industry for two reasons. First, the capital investment to install these delicate machines and the technical support to maintain them is daunting. Second, sorting coffee by hand supplies much-needed work for the small rural communities that often cluster around coffee mills. Nevertheless, computerized color sorters are essential to coffee industries in regions with relatively high standards of living and high wage demands.


Although not considered part of the processing pipeline proper, nearly all coffee sold to consumers throughout the world is sold as roasted coffee in general one of four degrees of roasting: light, medium, medium-dark, and dark. Consumers can also elect to buy unroasted coffee to be roasted at home. Green coffee can also be used for the preparation of infusions or ingested as ground powder, but this is of limited relevance to the global coffee market.

🇵🇦 LIFE DURING PANAMA LOCKDOWN
Shelter Bay, Panama

We have been here in Shelter Bay since before all of the covid started. But we are not really complaining. As voluntarily unemployed biologists, having access to a tropical forest with wild critters and plants, we have had endless fascinating explorations.

The marina is buzzing these days as people have come back to their boats or finally moved.

Glad to be part of the Posse.

Best wishes,



Richard (Bud) and Tracy and our newly adopted crew member, Chapito - the Panama cat.

What is Gestalt Theory and Why You Need To Know It ?

. Here are some general ideas about how it works:

1. Speak from your own experiences rather than giving advice or opinions

2. Use “I” statements instead of “You” statements

3. Speak in past tense

4. Avoid the “ you Should”, “ one Would”, “you Could”

5. Do not speak in generalities, be specific share a relevant past experience

It can take a lot of practice IT IS HARD TO NOT GIVE ADVICE - SHARE EXPERIENCES

THOUGHT EXERCISE
How would you convey the information on how to use satellite charts to navigate vs traditional charts ?

Coconut Grove

 

Gestalt aims to enable the individual to seek his or her own solutions to problems. Literally translated as 'whole / shape', Gestalt focuses the individuals past shareable experiences to convey information ( both good or bad ) to allow for a less biased knowledge exchange.

Dry Tortugas and Fort Jefferson lies about 60 nm due west of Key West.
In 1513, Ponce de León led the first known European expedition to La Florida, which he named during his first voyage to the area and discovered the islands in 1513 and named them for the tortoises (Spanish tortugas) that abounded there.

In 1521, Ponce de León returned to southwest Florida with the first large-scale attempt to establish a Spanish colony in what is now the continental United States. However, the native Calusa people fiercely resisted the incursion, and he was seriously wounded in a skirmish. The colonization attempt was abandoned, and died from his wounds soon after returning to Cuba. In 1821 Spain sold Florida to the United States for $5 million (Florida Purchase Treaty which remained in full effect for a whopping 183 days) and about 5 years later lighthouse was constructed on Garden Key in the dry Tortugas

During that time U.S. Navy Commodore David Porter inspected the Dry Tortugas island as he was on the lookout for a site for a naval station that would help suppress piracy in the Caribbean.

While Commodore Porter thought the Dry Tortugas were unfit for a naval station. He commanded a number of U.S. naval ships, including the famous USS Constitution and saw service in the First Barbary War. Porter was later court martialed and resigned and then –

joined and became commander-in-chief of the MEXICAN NAVY and inspired the songs “Hey Joe” and “I’m on the Mexican radio” (bad joke)

PASS ON INFORMATION TO THE PANAMA POSSE

What is Gestalt and Why You Need To Know It -
( GESTALT THEORY THIS IS VERY MUCH OPPOSED TO FACEBOOK AND SOCIAL MEDIA PRACTICES )

Gestalt Language Protocol is something I picked up from training in connection with a couple of different groups one of them being EO Gestalt Language Protocol may sound suspiciously like something the Secret Service uses to decode enemy communications, but really, it is simply a set of ideas about how to communicate with other CAPTAINS CREW and individuals in a nonthreatening manner so that people within the group feel like they can really share and learn. Here are some general ideas about how it works:

1. Speak from your own experiences rather than giving advice or opinions

2. Use “I” statements instead of “You” statements

3. Speak in past tense

4. Avoid the “Should”, “Would”, “Could”

5. Do not speak in generalities, be specific

It can take a lot of practice IT IS HARD !!!

THOUGHT EXERCISE
How would you convey the information on how to successfully
take a winch apart clean and service it using the gestalt method ?

OAXACA & MOLE

Oaxaca City in the Centro District in the Central Valleys region of the state. Heritage and cultural tourism makes up an important part of the city's economy, and it has numerous colonial-era structures as well as significant archeological sites and elements of the continuing native Zapotec and Mixtec cultures.

It is the site of the month-long cultural festival called the "Guelaguetza", which features Oaxacan dance from the seven regions, music, and a beauty pageant for indigenous women. 


 

The city is also known as "la Verde Antequera" and the variety of structures built from a native green stone. The name Oaxaca is derived from the Nahuatl name for the place, Huaxyacac, which was Hispanicized to Guajaca, later spelled Oaxaca. In 1872, "de Juárez" was added in honor of Benito Juárez, a native of this state who became president, serving from 1852 to 1872.

Zocalo

The Plaza de la Constitución, or Zócalo, was planned out in 1529 by Juan Peláez de Berrio. During the entire colonial period this plaza was never paved, nor had sidewalks, only a marble fountain that was placed here in 1739. This was removed in 1857 to put in the bandstand and trees were planted. In 1881, the vegetation here was rearranged and in 1885, a statue of Benito Juárez was added. It was remodeled again in 1901 and a new Art Nouveau bandstand installed. Fountains of green stone with capricious figures were installed in 1967. The bandstand in the center hosts the State Musical Band, La Marimba and other groups

Museum

Museo De Arte Contemporaneo De Oaxaca
is housed in the so-called Casa de Cortés. It is one of the oldest buildings in the city and one of the most representative of non-religious buildings.   Although it has been modified somewhat over the years, it still conserves its basic layout with rooms surrounding three courtyards. The architectural style is basically Andalucian modified by Oaxaca traditions.  The main portal is Spanish Baroque and has three levels. In the first, there are two "tritóstila" columns that support the balcony which has wrought iron railings.  At the top of the window is seal of the Jesuits. The third level contains a central niche with a sculpture of an archangel as well as the coats of arms of the Laso de la Vega and the Pinelo families.

SEVEN STYLES OF MOLE

Mole from Nahuatl mōlli, "sauce" is a traditional marinade and sauce originally used in Mexican cuisine. |
In contemporary Mexico the term is used for a number of sauces - see below

1. MOLE NEGRO

The “typical” savory-sweet mole mentioned above, and the one most frequently found.onion, garlic, whole spices like cinnamon, cloves, black pepper and cumin, dried chiles, pumpkin and sesame seeds, herbs like hoja santo (which contributes to the dark color) and cilantro, bread for thickening and sometimes dried fruit for extra sweetness.

 

 

2. MOLE ROJO

Red mole, also known as mole poblano,  using many of the same spices and base ingredients and also contains chocolate, but less. Instead, this sweeter, spicier and  versatile version is amped up with several kinds of dried red chile like pasilla, guajillo and ancho as well as pulverized raisins and almonds or peanuts. When the sauce is done, browned chicken, pork or beef is typically added and stewed until tender .

 

3. MOLE COLORADITO  

This brew translates to “a shade of red,” or “on the nifty side,” depending on what you’re doing in the kitchen. Somewhere between rojo and negro in color, this brown mole shares the base ingredients of whole spices, onions, garlic, seeds and chocolate and features  secret ingredients for thickening and sweetening: mashed ripe plantain.

 

4. MOLE AMARILLO

Picture all the goodness of the first three moles without the sweet and chocolate stuff and you have a delicious basic sauce to pour over or use as a cooking base   It’s not unlike a simple Indian curry sauce, the sky’s the limit.

MOLE AMARILLO

 

 

5. MOLE VERDE

White on the outside, green on the inside — that’s a pumpkin seed. Extra pepitas or pipian, along with fresh tomatillos, jalapenos and cilantro are the key ingredients in bright green mole verde. It can be diluted with chicken stock when it’s finished and poured over cooked chicken to make a soupy sauce mopped up with tortillas or bread.

Mole Verde

 

 

6. MOLE CHICHILO 

This one’s a little more intense. Round up all the beef bones y as you’re going to need them. This dark, spicy sauce starts with rich, homemade beef stock. The stock rehydrates dried chiles de arbol, anchos and guajillos which you then blend with the usual slow-cooked garlic and onions. Mole chichilo is thickened with either masa harina, lime-cured corn flour, or crushed fresh tortillas. No chocolate here but excellent for braises.Mole CHICHILO

 

 

7. MOLE MANCHAMANTEL 

This  mole is between the bright red chorizo grease, tomatoes and ancho chiles, you do not want to get this stuff on anything white. Featuring fresh pineapple in addition to plantain, manchamantel is a sweet, spicy, fruity sauce . Hence the name - translated into "tablecloth-staining"

The Plaza de la Constitución, or Zócalo, was planned out in 1529 by Juan Peláez de Berrio. During the entire colonial period this plaza was never paved, nor had sidewalks, only a marble fountain that was placed here in 1739. This was removed in 1857 to put in the bandstand and trees were planted. In 1881, the vegetation here was rearranged and in 1885, a statue of Benito Juárez was added. It was remodeled again in 1901 and a new Art Nouveau bandstand installed. Fountains of green stone with capricious figures were installed in 1967. The bandstand in the center hosts the State Musical Band, La Marimba and other groups

Museo De Arte Contemporaneo De Oaxaca

Museo De Arte Contemporaneo De Oaxaca
is housed in the so-called Casa de Cortés. It is one of the oldest buildings in the city and one of the most representative of non-religious buildings.   Although it has been modified somewhat over the years, it still conserves its basic layout with rooms surrounding three courtyards. The architectural style is basically Andalucian modified by Oaxaca traditions.  The main portal is Spanish Baroque and has three levels. In the first, there are two "tritóstila" columns that support the balcony which has wrought iron railings.  At the top of the window is seal of the Jesuits. The third level contains a central niche with a sculpture of an archangel as well as the coats of arms of the Laso de la Vega and the Pinelo families.

SEVEN STYLES OF MOLE 
 

1.) NEGRO 

The “typical” savory-sweet mole mentioned above, and the one most frequently found.
onion, garlic, whole spices like cinnamon, cloves, black pepper and cumin, dried chiles, pumpkin and sesame seeds, herbs like hoja santo (which contributes to the dark color) and cilantro, bread for thickening and sometimes dried fruit for extra sweetness.  

 SEVEN STYLES OF MOLE NEGRO

 

 

2. ROJO

Red mole, also known as mole poblano,  using many of the same spices and base ingredients and also contains chocolate, but less. Instead, this sweeter, spicier and  versatile version is amped up with several kinds of dried red chile like pasilla, guajillo and ancho as well as pulverized raisins and almonds or peanuts. When the sauce is done, browned chicken, pork or beef is typically added and stewed until tender .

3. COLORADITO  

This brew translates to “a shade of red,” or “on the nifty side,” depending on what you’re doing in the kitchen. Somewhere between rojo and negro in color, this brown mole shares the base ingredients of whole spices, onions, garlic, seeds and chocolate and features  secret ingredients for thickening and sweetening: mashed ripe plantain.

4. AMARILLO

Picture all the goodness of the first three moles without the sweet and chocolate stuff and you have a delicious basic sauce to pour over or use as a cooking base   It’s not unlike a simple Indian curry sauce, the sky’s the limit.

5. VERDE

White on the outside, green on the inside — that’s a pumpkin seed. Extra pepitas or pipian, along with fresh tomatillos, jalapenos and cilantro are the key ingredients in bright green mole verde. It can be diluted with chicken stock when it’s finished and poured over cooked chicken to make a soupy sauce mopped up with tortillas or bread.

6. CHICHILO 

This one’s a little more intense. Round up all the beef bones y as you’re going to need them. This dark, spicy sauce starts with rich, homemade beef stock. The stock rehydrates dried chiles de arbol, anchos and guajillos which you then blend with the usual slow-cooked garlic and onions. Mole chichilo is thickened with either masa harina, lime-cured corn flour, or crushed fresh tortillas. No chocolate here but excellent for braises.

7. MANCHAMANTEL
 This  mole is between the bright red chorizo grease, tomatoes and ancho chiles, you do not want to get this stuff on anything white. Featuring fresh pineapple in addition to plantain, manchamantel is a sweet, spicy, fruity sauce . Hence the name - translated into "tablecloth-staining"

SEVEN STYLES OF MOLE MANCHAMANTEL

Two states in Mexico claim to be the origin of mole: Puebla and Oaxaca. Oaxaca also has cheese, mezcal and grasshoppers (chapulines) with dishes such as tlayudas, Oaxacan style tamales and the above seven notable varieties of mole sauce.
