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.
"I definitely picked up on the toffee notes with this coffee. A great medium roast with rich buttery notes." (4 out of 5)
"The hints of toffee stood out with this cup! The tastes of chocolate weren't overpowering just enough to compliment the fruitiness of the blackberry. This was a very smooth cup and enjoyed with the windows cracked on a cool Saturday morning!" (4 out of 5)

"This was a delicious dark coffee that did great in the french press" (5 out of 5)
"Wow, well call me crazy but to me there is nothing "light" about this coffee. Anyway, to me, it's a dark roast, which are not my favs but it definitely was smooth with low acidity and fit squarely into how I feel about most dark roasts - it's ok. " (3 out of 5)
"Yum! This coffee is smooth and rich, a with nice caramelized flavor that lingers. It is great on its own - no need for sugar or cream. I used the simple pour-over method, which makes a perfect cup for me." (5 out of 5)
"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, but aeropress works best." (4 out of 5)
