A cool cup of Mexican coffee with unique (to Mexico) processing. Leaves the cup far from the traditional Mexican profile. Nice and sweet upfront with wonderful aromatics, a more fruit forward cup especially at lighter roasts. Bakers chocolate, malt, smoke and a bit of nuttiness comprise the darker tones. Very dependent on roast level, lighter roasts will be filled with more fruity and citric notes balancing with a nuttier, dryer, chocolaty undertone. Medium roasts are balanced and bring forward the more nutty and chocolaty character, muting the fruity and lemony/floral tones, they are still there in the cup, just more in the aftertaste than the first thing to hit your taste buds. Darker roasts pick up an almost barrel aged tones like you would find in beer or scotch and turn a bit smoky and malty.
A nice medium roast is the way to go, can lean it a little lighter or darker depending on personal taste. Roasts pretty even for a natural, is a bit higher chaff, but would still make the easier to roast category.

I gravitate toward the Ethiopian coffees because of their fruitiness, which is why I decided to try this bean. I tried roasting with two different profiles and was pleasantly surprised with both outcomes. I roasted the beans longer on one profile over the other profile. I enjoy Mexican coffee’s but if in a blind taste test, I would swear this one was from Ethiopia with the fruit tones that come from this bean. I had to come back and order more!
Came back looking for more after roasting the rest of the pound. Honestly thought I had mixed up my labeling because this bean comes off as Ethiopian natural but has a really nice balance of acidity which I’ll attribute to it’s central american side. Definitely getting those strawberry and raspberry tones. Delicious!

What a surprise difference the natural processed is over the washed, amazing profile I wish I could order more. Hopefully this comes back in stock soon as its by far my favorite Burman offers.
