A taste of this coffee starts with a very clean, mildly sweet flavor with a pleasant fruitiness that dances in the mouth with a smooth, cocoa butter body. This is a medium bodied, medium acidity coffee with a very rich flavor and a hint of Cuban smokiness. It has a slight syrupy sweetness, spicy bright mouth feel, followed by a nice clean aftertaste and finish- overall a fine example of coffee from Guatemala!
When roasted light, this bean produces a smooth and creamy body with a mellow nutty flavor and floral aroma. Medium roast becomes sweeter and more rich while darker roasts emphasize nuttyness and spicy flavors.
