    A lovely, full-bodied Guatemalan that is very fruity/juicy. I get fresh plum, apricot, and a strongly brewed black tea. I want a little bit more complexity given the richness of the initial acidity. A very nice cup overall.

    Cupping Method:Chemex pourover. Have a small bag from a JBC fall sampler.

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: Guatemala
Guatemala is one of the main coffee-producing countries in Central America. Its volcanic soil and altitude make it ideal for producing quality arabica.
Coffee in Guatemala is grown in the high-altitude regions of the country. The country is known for producing high-quality Arabica beans, known for their well-balanced, rich, and complex flavors with notes of chocolate, fruit, and nuts with great acidity. The volcanic soil and favorable climate conditions contribute to the unique taste profile of Guatemalan coffee. The coffee industry is a significant part of the country's economy, with small-scale farmers and cooperatives being the primary producers. Guatemala represents around 2% of the world's coffee production, but due to its reputation for high quality, has an outsized impact in specialty roasts.
Bean Source Region: Antigua
Antigua Guatemala coffee is renowned for its rich, full-bodied flavor that is often characterized by a balanced sweetness, bright acidity, and complex notes of chocolate, caramel, and citrus. Grown in the fertile volcanic soils of the Antigua region, the beans benefit from the area's unique microclimate, which contributes to their distinctive taste. This coffee is typically medium-roasted to highlight its inherent flavor profile.
