    This roast is a treat for light roast lovers! Creamy, chocolatey/nutty mouthfeel with a surprising and subtle sweet tartness. Strong/bold coffee flavor, with a light and floral hint of lime.

    Cupping Method:Moka espresso, cream with no sweetener

    I gave this one 4 tries.

    It's smooth and easy to drink but missing a bright note of acidity. It's milk chocolate forward in the light roast sense, then a bit hoppy, and then a light version of the milk chocolate intro. Maybe a little bit of plum in background. Folks who like smooth, low-acidity coffee will like this (but the bag says tangerine and lime, which I don't get at all).

    Cupping Method:Best was at 196F in the Hario v60, 18:1. I tried a bit hotter once and it drew out more hoppiness but not more acidity.

    I didn't get the citrus flavors on the label at all, but I enjoyed the smoothness of this roast. It was light and easy.

    Cupping Method:Pour over

More Details

Roast Level: Light
Light roast coffee is a delicately roasted coffee that retains more of the beans' natural flavors and characteristics. Light-roasted coffees have bright acidity, complex fruit, and floral notes. Light roast coffee does not have less caffeine than darker roasts because caffeine levels remain stable during roasting.
Bean Source Country: Mexico
Mexican specialty coffee is marked by its diverse growing regions, rich volcanic soil, and varied microclimates. These coffees often showcase mild acidity, medium body, and a range of flavors, including chocolate, nuts, and subtle fruit notes. Once treated as commodity beans, Mexico's shade-grown Arabica is benefitting from a more nuanced examination of its micro-terrain.
Bean Source Region: Oaxaca
Oaxacan coffee has lush mountains, rugged valleys, and fertile soils with altitudes of up to 2000 MASL. Oaxacan coffee has rich chocolate notes, nutty undertones, and delicate floral nuances, often complemented by subtle smoky or spicy notes.
