Description

raw green bean Green coffee is raw Roast prior to consumption

This lot comes from a group of smallholder producers in Northern Chiapas. The coffee is brought to the San Cristobal de las Casas and Yajalón buying stations in Northern Chiapas. These producers plant, harvest, and prepare the coffee by hand. Generally, each produces between 10 to 15 bags. To help ensure the producers receive a fair price, InterAmerican works closely with the exporters that support these communities with social projects. The exporters also use their own transportation infrastructure to bring the producers’ coffees to market.

The harvest season is December through March. All the coffee is received in parchment, quality controlled, and transported to a high-tech dry mill in Veracruz. After a second quality check, the coffee is cleaned, milled and sorted to be prepared for export. This coffee has a quality-control standard that allows for only 15 imperfections per 300 grams.

Cupping notes: Milk chocolate, nutty, grape, citrus; medium body, cools sweet.

Received 1/2# sample for free in CBCs Intl. Coffee Day promotion. About as perfect a daily drinker as you'll find. Inexpensive, a bean any coffee drinker would enjoy. Roasted to City+. What strikes you first is the velvety mouthfeel. So smooth. Not bold flavors, slightly nutty, just a hint of chocolate on the back end. Drank 48 hours after roasting, so more flavors might develop. I'm thinking this would be a good bean to blend with a more expensive one to help defray the cost without negatively impacting the taste, all the while adding to the smoothness of the blend. But again, just a great daily coffee.

I've become quite the coffee snob since roasting my own coffee for the past year. This Mexican coffee has a nice nutty aroma and taste with a nice overall chocolate/nutty balance roasted to second crack.

Love this bean as an every day drinker. It has nice nutty notes which I prefer. It tastes great even when cold. I roast them light and medium.

Took this about 20-30 seconds into the 2nd crack at 240°c on my cheapo Barwell roaster and let it sit for about 24 hrs. Just tried it this morning and I'm truly surprised. For me, this makes a really nice, tasty cup of coffee.

Sift graded to yield 50% @ 18/64", 40% @ 16/64" and 10% less than 16/64". Roasted each fraction separately to get excellent control, minimal chaff. One roast at City (1C) was smooth, very citrus, notes of chocolate and nuts. Very smooth not bitter. Second roast at Full City (2C) was most excellent with far more flavors. The citrus muted while the other components developed. Very smooth, sweet, buttery without any bitter. Cools very well.

This is our go to bean of choice. People always asking for more. At light to medium roast it is truly a bouquet of flavors. It makes a nice dark roast as well. Very forgiving, easy to roast. For price and quality, first time or experienced roasters cant go wrong. As always it was shipped quickly, easy to navigate website, customer service is great. Burlap bags are awesome and the grain pro bags have such a great seal that I swear I can smell the farm when I open the bag. Two thumbs up!

Very nice bean that is an easy roast to City+ on my Gene. Creamy, milk chocolate, roasted nuts and gets better as it cools in the cup. Great breakfast coffee which has a ton of flavor but soft and very buttery.

This coffee is rich in flavor. It carries a bold taste but never bitter. It roasts incredibly easy and city roast brings out the hidden flavors of the flowery and exotic south. It’s on my top 5 list, for sure.

A very, very nice coffee. I’ve had coffee in the famous coffee houses in Vienna, Venice and a few others, and this coffee surpasses them all; not bragging, just fact. My method: 176 grams in a 7” skillet (not cast iron) with glass lid, shake every 5 or 6 seconds, not stirred, very low gas flame in-doors, stop roasting when you see the oily sheen start, if you see scorching (dark/burned spots) the flame is too high; takes about 12 minutes, cool in a colander by stirring/mixing with a soup spoon until smoke is no-longer coming off the beans; de-gas at least 48 hours. This method is almost a full French roast, and works well with other CBC beans that are chocolatey & buttery. It took years of trial & error to figure this out, and a lot of over-roasted beans along the way. This coffee is better than mortal man deserves, but “Jeder Hund hat seinen Tag.”

This is a fantastic coffee! Roasted to just beyond second crack. This bean can take a lot of heat- finished at 230c. Drinking it black with a heavy side of freshly whipped cream which I take a spoon of with every sip. So good! This will likely become one of my EDC beans.

Continually a best seller for me! This is a very smooth coffee! One of the few coffees that stay good even as it cools down. Extremely verasatile! Goes great in an espresso blend or as a single origin. Works good as a daily drinker with literally any brew method. Makes an incredible cold brew! I roast to a full medium. I try to stop the roast right before second crack. But no less than before first crack is completely finished.

One of the best Chiapas varietals I've roasted. At 12 seconds onto 2nd crack, it develops good flavor without the roast being too dark. On my list of favorites.

I was really excited about this one as I love Mexican Chiapas in general. Expected a creamy mouthful, chocolate notes, smooth, etc. But I have tried this bean three times and it tastes almost like a robusto bean to me. Not one I will buy again.

Every selection from coffee bean coral has so far been excellent exceededing expectations. This mild mannered Mexican is no different with a subtle distinct Chiapas flavor and aroma that make it an immediate favorite. Gracias Amigos para cafe magnifico!

Still experimenting with roasting times. Not sure I would buy it again, but it's not terrible, just not great.

Great tasting coffee. I roast them to just before second crack. They do produce quite a bit of chaff so I keep the roast size down.

Best of the three Mexicans I have tried. Really great flavor, even after it goes cold in the cup. Roasted into second crack and it was amazing. Highly recommended.

Very good for traditional medium roasted coffee. I'm a light roast person, but this was pleasantly smooth but did have pleasing bitter components. Great full body taste.
