    I didn't get all of these flavors mentioned by the roaster in any my attempts but I think this was a smooth, simple, balanced cup with a nice mouthfeel. Milk chocolate and a touch of citrus acidity. Very nice chocolate aroma on the grind.

    Cupping Method:Pourover at 203F

More Details

Roast Level: Medium
Medium roast coffee balances the beans' natural flavors and the roasting process, providing a well-rounded taste profile. When selecting a medium roast, look for a balance of acidity and sweetness, with caramel, nuts, and chocolate notes and a medium body.
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.
Organic
Organic coffee is produced without synthetic chemicals, such as pesticides, herbicides, and artificial fertilizers. Instead, organic coffee farmers rely on natural and sustainable agricultural practices like crop rotation, composting, and biological pest control. To be labeled as organic, coffee must meet strict regulations and certification criteria set by governing bodies, such as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) or the European Union (EU). Organic coffee not only supports environmental sustainability but may also offer health benefits, as it contains fewer chemical residues than conventionally grown coffee.
