Longshoreman’s Daughter loved this coffee so much that they bought the entire harvest from the Guatemalan microlot farm of Gregorio Carrillo! Featuring a light, satin body, and soft acidity, this roast is brimming with notes of baker’s chocolate and toffee with a sweet molasses finish. We’re in love, and we know you will be too.
This microlot from Gregorio Carrillo produced just 31 bags of coffee and we bought the whole lot. This certified Fair Trade Organic roast was chosen as a microlot during an annual internal cupping competition held by the CODECH cooperative where Carrillo’s farm is located. It wowed the judges, and it wowed us. Mellow, and smooth as silk, it exhibits the classic Huehue regional notes of blackberry and chocolate, with an elegant acidity and hint of toffee.
"This one is a little puzzling to me - the smell of the beans, both before and after the grind, does not match the taste at all... it's still a nice coffee, but all the floral fruitiness I smell seems to go away during brewing. I've tried both paper and metal mesh filters as pourover." (4 out of 5)
