Bean Box Breakdown

A medium roast with the body and presence of a darker coffee, and the bright, black-forest-cake flavors that make Guatemalan coffees so enticing. This coffee is Little Red Riding Hood, and the wolf, combined.

Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie Story

The coffee beans of this varietal are rare and grow nearly wild in the rich volcanic soils of Guatemala. One of the most requested coffees: rich red color with a spicy-sharp aroma and warm heart.

"I received this coffee in my "Espresso" sampler. Initially, I was surprised it was a medium roast, but it does have a bold flavor. I could discern some of the individual notes, but the chocolate was most pronounced. Overall, it was pretty good!" (4 out of 5)

"When I saw the darker shade of the beans, I wasn't sure if I would like this one since I normally prefer lighter roasts, but I was pleasantly surprised! This was my favorite of the recent four-pack I received. " (5 out of 5)

"This roast wasn't bad but was the least flavorful Guatemalan roast I've had. Spicy notes come out a bit but are pretty muted overall. " (3 out of 5)

"This is a wonderful coffee. It has a really satisfying dark chocolate/cocoa taste, that has an "edge" but not overly bitter. I definitely recommend it for those that like deep, complex flavoring. I made it in a French press. It has the personality of an Americano vs. just a cup of coffee. " (4 out of 5)

"A great medium roast coffee with great body. No hint of bitterness- definitely dark and smooth." (4 out of 5)

"I'm in love with the dry aroma of this coffee. Hickory smoked bacon, molasses and "waffles". Needless to say this is a great morning cup. The traits found in the dry aroma translate well into the cup. The medium body welcomes a splash or more of good quality cream. " (4 out of 5)
