The aroma is rich, dark, chocolate, classic on the nose. Acidity is low to medium and the body is full. The flavor is subtle: dark, mocha notes, and rich.

Vibrant and spicy, this is a heavy coffee reminiscent of the atmosphere on this tropical paradise.
$9.00
Brilliant acidity, a medium body, and sweet flavors of orange citrus, caramelized sugar, and fine chocolate. It is impeccably balanced with a long, satisfying finish

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.
