a bit more acidic and bitter than we expected, not as nutty as I had hoped, but not bad.
This is interesting although confusing, but there is a good lesson here. Using the terms 'acidic' and 'bitter' in the same sentence seems almost contradictory as characteristics of a coffee, yet in a more global perspective of the overall taste they make sense.
It leads me to believe the author may be having a problem with one of the other factors of getting a good cup of coffee, specifically the grind and / or the actual brewing process instead of the beans themselves. To whit, the acidity and bitterness is usually the result of either too fine a grind, or brewing with water that is not hot enough, or drinking from a pot that has been left sitting on a heating plate. Since I have no way of knowing the actual facts, let's use this review to learn some important factors about brewing coffee instead of bean selection. I would be interested in hearing back from the author to find out if he has similar experiences with other beans or ???

No acidity or bitterness in my batch. But agreed, no nuttiness either. Not even picking up flowery. Definite Guatemalan chocolate notes (although subtle compared to other batches) but the most prominent other flavor is lemon drop hard candy. I agree with the remaining matrix attributes listed. Only gave it 3 stars because I'm not a big fan of lemon. Otherwise, would likely give it 4 stars. I'm kinda new to the whole roasting thing but am loving CBC for consistent availability, email notifications, and the coffee bean matrix for searching. More customers need to provide reviews.

I just drank my first cup of this. I roasted it just a few seconds into second crack, let the beans rest for about 3 days, did a french press. WOW! wonderful flavors. Maple, chocolate, sweet, hint of fruit, full body (I prefer a darker roast). No nuttiness, but I'm not complaining. Completely different flavor to the other coffee that I had roasted previously. Of my first two varieties I've tried since starting to roast again, this is a fave!

I wanted a substitute for Huehuetenango Aguacatones Honey. This varriety comes close, but no cigar. Still darn good and it's now on my list of 'desirable' coffees.

Very good! There's not a lot of depth of flavor in my roasting of this coffee yet, but it's reliably good.

The Huehuetenango beans from Coffee Bean Corral are excellent. I usually travel to Guatemala twice a year to lead Habitat for Humanity house building trips and bring 5-10 pounds of green beans with me each time, With the travel shut down, I was missing good, Guatemalan coffee. These beans are like a taste from home.
