This new release from our friends at Rosetta Roastery is quite a light roast, even for a roaster that has a reputation for roasting on the lighter side. While this might make it a coffee at risk of under-extraction if not brewed correctly, the results in a well executed manual brew are truly mouth watering. This is anything but your typical Guatemalan though - expect something quite different.

In a pour-over or a siphon this coffee was deliciously delicate with delicate citrus notes, lots of sweetness and a comforting malty flavour. In a couple of brews we also got a subtle tropical fruit note. We'd highly recommend you try the coffee in either of those brew methods, and don't be shy of longer extractions or higher temperatures. It seems to reward every additional bit of extraction (within reason of course)!

Roaster's notes

Style: Progressive
Light & clean, with juicy citrus and sweet malt notes

“Hey, you, the guy in the flaming car; how many bombs have you disarmed?” The colonel addressed Will from a safe distance; the air was filled with the smell of gunpowder, burnt sugar, and a hint of mutiny. Will’s cheeks were flushed; raspberry red, even through the thick layer of dust. His mouth was drier than leftover lime layer cake.

When a coffee is as clean and balanced as this one, it is hard to under-roast it. Even when those slightly raw grain notes appear, it somehow feels right in the context of the clean citrus acidity, and fairly neutral sugarcane sweetness.
