For those who like the dark smokey tones, to the bright, fruity floral tones, this coffee can be roasted a light to very dark roast. I tend to lean toward the dark side, as it is the very best in flavor and roast. This coffee is excellent by itself or great in an espresso blend with a light Colombian and medium Papua New Guinea! There are numerous blends you can mix with Guatemalan. Just as the Red-Tailed hawk drifts over it’s prey, the Guatemalan coffee glides smoothly over your palate, as you experience the delicious, roasted flavor of these top-grade beans.
