Cupping Guatemala El Injertal – New Roast Profile

We cupped the new roast profile of Guatemala El Injertal. We used very high initial charge temperatures without adding additional heat, which is different from the way we roasted the Guatemala up to this point. My goal was to increase the acidity and mouthfeel of this great coffee by shortening the roast time and keeping first crack at around 8 minutes.

Cupping Notes

Fragrance (ground coffee;dry): Toasted nuts, good coffee aroma, and a hint of burned fattiness.

Aroma (water added to coffee): Milk chocolate, dry earth and dark chocolate

Body: This is a perfect example of a medium bodied coffee

Acidity: Initially, drying cocoa and after 30 minutes of cooling, a fruit acidity came through huge.

Flavor:  Not addressed in this cupping
