To contextualize, the other RhoadsRoast ooffees I have tried (from Guatemala and El Salvador) were dark-roasted and were velvety-smooth with that distinctive bourbon flavor finish. I got the Chiapas coffee medium-roast, so already a difference there. There is a distinct chocolate smell on the grind. Some chocolate-ish flavor but there is something fresh, raw and slightly bitter here. I like it. It doesn’t sweep you off your feet like the bourbon coffees A more acquired taste, like a person with an interesting but prickly personality. Still, I’d did acquire the taste and think is a good complement to the other Central American coffees.
Consistent and great quality.
RhoadsRoast Chiapas - light roast. We (two of us) go through five lbs. a month, and this bean has a perfect flavor and strength.
Love the light roast Mexican Chiapas
This is one of my favorites. Medium roast is perfect. The people of Mexico should take great pride in this coffee
