Guatemala Chimaltenango Xejuyu

Flavors of unrefined sugars - It's sweet all the way through, and almost tastes as if someone spiked your cup with simple syrup! Notes of cinnamon, apple, and Asian pear are propped up nicely against this backdrop of sugary-sweet flavors. The chocolate that is sensed in the aromatics shows up in the darker roast profiles, with Full City tasting of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and juicy malic fruits. This is definitely a lower acid cup, but with definition and brilliance. Great SO espresso.

The farm of Xejuyu is located in the region of Chimaltenango, right in between the city of Antigua and Lake Atitlan. In Mayan "Xejuyu" translates to "base of the mountain", which makes sense based on it's proximity to the foothills. This also equates to good altitude, with farm elevation ranging from 1500 - 1700 meters. Owner Jorge del Carmen grows mainly Bourbon, Caturra, and some Typica varietals. The coffee is carted down to Antigua where it is milled at Bella Vista.
Xejuyu has just the right balance of sweetness and acidity that make it a great "every day" brewed coffee. The dry fragrance smells of milk chocolate and spices, along with a pleasing note of cola nut. Dark roasts have elements of dried cherry and developed chocolate roast smells. Caramel is very much up front in the wet aroma, with spiced elements and pumpkin bread. Full City roasts are intensely sweet with a deep caramel smell. This is one sweet cup of coffee. Flavors of unrefined sugars create the framework that the rest of this cup's profile is built upon. It's sweet all the way through, and almost tastes as if someone spiked your cup with simple syrup! Notes of cinnamon, apple, and Asian pear are propped up nicely against this backdrop of sugary-sweet flavors. The chocolate that is sensed in the aromatics shows up in the darker roast profiles, with Full City tasting of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and juicy malic fruits. This is definitely a lower acid cup, but with definition and brilliance. This coffee brews very well, and will make an outstanding SO espresso.
