El Socorro Bourbon

If you're having a rough day, this is the coffee for you. Juan Diego is a fourth-generation coffee farmer from Guatemala, and has put unbelievable effort into growing some of the most decadent coffees in recent memory. The farm uses advanced patio & greenhouse constructions to dry their Caturra and Bourbon bean after they have been washed and processed through their on-site mill. This coffee is definitely sweet, with flavor notes of caramel & sugarcane stealing the show and producing a distinctly Guatemalan flavor that we really love. However, this coffee manages to steer clear of the acidity of many sweet coffees, which means these beans brew a cup that's smooth and easy to savor. Drink up, we know we sure are!

Smooth, Subtle, low Acidity - Great Coffee

Continued brewing with my Chemex at 40 grams ground and 660 grams of water. It wasn't as flavorful as some other coffees that have been shipped, but I still enjoyed the more subtle and subdued flavors. A huge 'win' was that my wife started to drink this coffee with very, very little else in the cup. She enjoyed the lighter notes and the less robust flavor.

Good roast. Pretty straight forward flavor, with slightly acidic back flavor. Was a little thin in my lattes but tasty as a straight espresso.

The body was a tad light so my second cup (pour-over) I used over 40 gms. Much better.

Kalita goodness

This is a very balanced coffee, and works lovely in the Kalita 155.

Nice

A good, sweet, low-acidity coffee. Not particularly complex, but pleasant nonetheless.
