Home Coffee Roast - Guatemala Fraijanes- Finca Aqua Tibia roasted to a Vienna or Light French Roast.
My Guatemala Fraijanes- Finca Aqua Tibia roasted to a Vienna or Light French Roast has GREAT flavor! Sweet Maria's desription is, "At Full City: Tangy, bittersweet chocolate notes with spicy accents of clove, cardomom, apple cider finish." I took this roast a bit further to a Vienna roast, just as the 2nd crack began. The darker roast is supposed to increase the the "origin character" of the bean. In this case it's the Guatemala bean. Read more on the levels of roast at Sweet Maria's Roasting Guide.
My 1st post about roasting this bean was done to a full city roast and I have a short post about it here: Guatemala Fraijanes at Full City. At that time, I noted that it tasted good and not much more to comment. It's difficult for me to say which coffee I like better than another. For now, I've decided that I just have to say if it's a flavor I like or if it's just one that I don't enjoy as much.
This Guatemala Fraijanes bean roasted to a Vienna roast is great! The darker roast really brings out the "spicy accents". I think the "apple cider finish" was noticeable in the 1st few sips then a bold flavor was apparent. I prefer the bold bodied coffees and I think it's the "chocolate notes" the bring this boldness out at the darker roast.
This makes an excellent cup of coffee for my tastes at the Vienna roast! Mmmmm :P
