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.
This coffee bursts with bright, clean fruity flavors in addition to stunning aromas. What this lot lacks in complexity it makes up for in red berry taste with a sweet finish that lingers long after the coffee is gone. This is one of the most stunning aromatic coffees I have ever brewed and with certain tea-like qualities that make it easy to drink and less acidic than most premium brews.
Super flavorful and well-rounded coffee, but needs a little more sweetness to send it to 5 stars.
I don't like the sour fruit flavors of this South American coffee.
good, smooth, a little less flavorful than we typical like
Solid coffee. Enjoyable lacks a little body.
Excellent coffee-very smooth and well balanced. Great for 1st cup of the day or an evening cup after dinner. Really am happy with this one.
Opening the bag, the scent was that of sweet cream. I use this for pour over, and the flavors I found most prominent were raspberry and black tea.
Brilliant - best of the Onyx I've had. Lots of great floral flavors balanced with woody backbone. Sweet all the way through.
Great coffee. Definitely fruit forward as described.
I thought this was a very good coffee. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because it didn't overly wow me, but it was completely solid and good. The strongest flavor I get is of black tea while fruity flavors linger in the back of my tongue after sipping. The black tea flavors are even stronger as an aftertaste. After the coffee has cooled off a bit, the sweeter notes come forward even more. I cannot quite make out the berry flavors, but the peach flavors do pop up here and there.
I was very much a fan of this. This is maybe only the third or fourth honey processed roast I've ever had, and I would be very interested in trying more. Thanks for a great first pick!
This is absolutely delicious! A rich flavor without being too strong, not acidic, very smooth with a lovely, lingering finish.
It was a little darker than I normally enjoy, but once I dialed it in on the V60 it was pretty good and I could taste some delicious notes of grapefruit.
Onyx is hands down the best roaster I have enjoyed to date
This coffee has a nice fruity aroma and I did notice a pleasant earthy tea-like finish. The flavors weren't overwhelming and made for a pleasant coffee to drink. It took me a while to dial this coffee in ended up a finer grind brought out the best flavors.
Fruity and aromatic. Loved it.
like the fruity an juicy notes.
I've not got much experience with light roasts and it took me a while to get it brewed right then a while to get used to the differen Flavor. At first all I really tasted was tea, but I'm beginning to pick up on the other subtleties. I rated this 4 stars and would like to try something else on this side of the toast scale.
I like the fruity smell this coffee has. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because the taste is a little weak. I put 16g of coffee for one Aeropress brew.
I liked this one
Nice and fruit froward. Tannic finish.
I found this coffee to be quite good, but definitely very subtle.
delicate and light bodied
I don't prefer chocolate notes in my coffee, so I was a but nervous to see that descriptor for this coffee. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I really enjoyed every cup I brewed! I loved the sweet, fruity flavors and especially the florality. I'd never heard of Onyx Coffee Lab, but I'd say this was a pretty good first impression.
Me and my roommate really enjoyed this coffee. We both felt that this was one of the smoothest, easiest to drink coffees we have ever had. Florals were very prevalent and noticed the black tea flavor. Wish it would have had a little bit more fruitiness to it instead of just florals. But overall, was really please with this bag.
I thought this was a really good coffee. Maybe it was the way I made it, but I thought some of the notes and flavors could have been slightly stronger. Is there a way to improve that on the next shipment?
Taste Great in a pour or Aeropress. Bold Flavor with Fruity and Floral Notes. Good Pick!
I really enjoyed this coffee, could really taste the fruityear flavor. The coffee wasn't as bold as I like it, but overall very good.
Really love this coffee! I'm having trouble finding any floral notes to it, but the overall fruity taste is no joke! Has just enough brightness to it, if that makes sense.
I'm really enjoying this coffee! I've been playing with the grind a little and I think I have it finally set to brew well with my v60. I'm really enjoying the mouth feel of this as well as the chocolate notes with a little fruity undertones. I typically enjoy really bright coffees and although this is not the brightest I've had it is quite good and I am thoroughly enjoying it. Thanks for the great coffee!
Chemex brewed. Pleasant honey notes, detectable acidity. Lightly fragrant nose.
Loved this one.
Loved this one. A great balance of fruit to acidity.
This Guat by Onyx had a nice rounded fruit sweetness, balanced by a delicate tea-like body. Slightly sour finish, but perhaps due to imperfect brewing. Looking for more fruit notes, similarly floral/sweet body.
This is a very good roast. I tried brewing it several different ways and really recommend the inverted aeropress method.
Pretty juicy indeed, especially for a Latin American coffee. I have experienced both the fruity and chocolate of this coffee. Juicy in the front and middle, chocolate at the finish. I've definitely enjoyed this coffee. About half way through the bag, so I'll continue to experiment with recipes and brew methods. So far Aeropress has been the winner to bring it all out.
Really fantastic fruity coffee from a place I hadn't tried before. Exactly what I was hoping for.
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.
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.
