  • Sweet fragrance and aroma, notes of honey, milk chocolate, nutty with a minty aftertaste, mild orange acidity, creamy medium body. Overall well balanced and sweet.
  • Like most of the coffee from Chiapas that we source, this lot from Pedro Mendez is a very versatile coffee. Medium roasts seem to be where the coffee shines with very sugary sweetness and mellow acidity. The coffee also holds heat well into darker roasts for more notes of chocolate and brown spices. Note the density of this lot when roasting as it may require a bit more energy to roast.

Roasted this up to a light/medium roast to maintain some of that orange acidity. The combination of the chocolate and nutty taste notes along with the hint of orange was awesome. Very smooth and left that taste of wanting more.

Glad you enjoyed Mr. Mendez's coffee, Jay! We hope to offer his coffee again next year.

Amazing Espresso

Based on this roast -
Cupped 7-19-22, Fragrance - Not much. Grounds look like a medium roast color. Aroma - a bit, not much. Taste - not impressed but my pallet doesn't care for coffees like this. It also be because I roasted a bit too dark/long. The website description is accurate of the tasting notes. Espresso is where it is at for this coffee. WOW! so good! This could be used at a shop for single origin and/or milk based drinks.
