The Guatemala El Limonar was carefully roasted for you by Onyx Coffee Lab. This honey processed coffee was grown by José Bernabé Martínez in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala between 1,850 meters above sea level. This is a stellar coffee, with fruit forward juicy peach and raspberry, with delicate floral and black tea finish.
Beans were pretty dry, had to set grinder a few clicks finer than I ever use. Enjoyed the flavor, however.
It is a solid cup of coffee, but not one that I would be happy to have served to me at a coffee shop. I feel like the chocolate tones overwhelm the other notes, though the last taste from any sip is usually a little brighter.
Flavor seemed kind of weak. Beans seemed really dry after I ground them.
I love this honey process. One of the most complex coffee flavors I've ever tasted. Loved it!
Had some trouble wrangling this coffee and really nailing a good cup. Even adjusting the grind size pretty far from where I normally have it I still had trouble getting good extraction and a great cup. Not sure if it was my bag or this roast from Onyx, but usually they're on point.
I enjoyed the coffee. The roast was very good and I loved the front end notes. Because I am not as big of a fan of floral notes, the finish was not as good to me as the front. Overall, however, I enjoyed this coffee.
perhaps a little too fruity for me but otherwise great
Great fruity and floral notes. Very complex flavors. I don't think I would ever get bored of this coffee.
Made my favorite cup of this in my Chemex and my Baratza Encore 485 Coffee Grinder.
Used a 21 on the grinder
25 grams of coffee
400 grams of water
50 grams of water for the bloom letting sit for 45 seconds
Adding water as needed over a few minutes not letting the grinds get dry or drown
Very fruity and juicy coffee. Brewed over Chemex and V60 01.
A very interesting and complex coffee! In the few weeks I spent brewing it, no two cups were the same. I kept the grind consistent, always used my V60, made sure it finished extracting between two and three minutes, and yet every cup was so different. Sometimes I'd get very strong peach and black tea notes, while other times the floral notes dominated the cup--yet every time there were several flavors presenting themselves with every sip. While no cup was by any means bad, there also wasn't any cup that really wowed me. This is less due to Onyx's roasting and more due to the fact that I prefer being hit over the head with one specific tasting note rather than many different notes at once. Again, I enjoyed dissecting the coffee, and perhaps once my taste buds are more experienced/refined I'll enjoy a coffee like this one more.
A nice balanced, fruity cup!
Delicious coffee with a killer aroma.
Soooo good. You nailed it. This is exactly what I wanted. I picked up on the peach right up front followed by raspberry. This is about as fruity as I would want a coffee to be. Much more would be overkill. I could stand for it to be more floral though. Rose, jasmine, etc... I need more of that in my life.
Good, though a bit too juicy for me---I didn't get the finish as much as I would have liked after the fruit.
I can definitely taste some of the fruit notes. I liked this
Very nice. No harshness, but still nicely robust.
Overall, very, very solid. Got the fruit forward flavors as described upfront and the finish was definitely on the floral side & tea-like. I'm only a few pour over cups into the bag and still playing around with ratios, but 24 g of beans, 60 g of water bloomed for 30 seconds with 320 g of overall water seems to be the sweet spot so far.
Rating it 4/5 stars, but could easily be a 5/5. The finish was a little too light for my personal liking, but again, coffee is definitely as described and very well executed.
Wouldn't hesitate to order this one again.
This coffee is very good, torn between a 4 and a 5, but I tend be optimistic that there are better coffees out there. I just finished a coffee that was just TOO MUCH flavor, almost like drinking a loaf of banana bread! (Ceremony Coffee Roasters - ETHIOPIA YIRGACHEFFE WAZZALA) This Guatemala is kind of similar in taste, but much more mellow and "clean"? Definitely a good flavor, and would definitely buy again. "Juicy" is a good word, and I don't really taste any chocolate notes, personally. Looking forward to the next coffee! Hopefully it is just as good or better!
Really great. Perfect balance of flavors.
It was very weak. We like light coffee to avoid the oils but this one was difficult to get to a strength we like.
