Ratings & Reviews
Very nice coffee
We sampled several offering from Guatemala available on the site and this one definitely stood out. Medium/heavy body with buttery mouthfeel. Distinct chocolate and caramelized sugar notes build with roast. Subtle tart cherry hints in light to medium roast levels. Well balanced and smooth cup. Not quite as robust in character and flavor as some higher scoring offerings we've come across but overall a good representation of quality guatemalan coffee.
A “necessary” bean for my blend.

This is a great bean! I take it to FC+ and blend it with a bean from Honduras. It has become part of what I call, “The Perfect Blend.”
<br>Heavy body, and strong dark chocolate notes. So much so, that a friend, who has cream in his coffee said, without knowing this, “I think I taste a chocolate.”
I agree this coffee is a great representation from Guatemala, which happens to be one of my personal favorite origins. I smell chocolate every time it's brewing. This is in our breakfast blend and we get constant requests for it.

Stands on its own as a single-origin and also great with blends. It is sweet but not too sweet, rich and chocolatey. Buttery mouth feel and even makes great SO espresso with impressive crema. Don't hesitate on this one!
Smooth and Delicious
Delicious cup of coffee. We roasted it 10-15 seconds into second crack. It is smooth and sweet....chocolatey - just what we were looking for. We tried many samples and this was the one we were serving for. We are home roasters, for our own enjoyment. Everyone we have served this coffee to compliments us on how wonderful it tastes! Easy to drink, anytime of day.
