First time with this bean. Love Guatemalan. Most flavor from a bean...Full city was incredible...but then again so was city+
Great flavors either roast
Guatemala had nice basic coffee flavor. Not to complex. Tasted like Arabica. I roasted it two minutes after second crack and rift at second crack. No change in taste except a little more burnt which is expected.
I just roasted two pounds of this last week and I am enjoying it immensely.
I'm using it in a blend for espresso drinks with Brazil Rancho Grande and a Columbian bean (I forget which one) and it is working out well but I haven't used it by itself so I can't speak to it's use in other methods.
I roasted at different levels on a Behmor AB. Was very easy. The light does not have as many notes popping out that are overwhelming like the other Guats from recent ( Los santos & Hanapu). When I want the notes to jump out like a pour over this one didn't standout as the others. But very good taste in all uses. Light to med is nice for drip and pour over, But medium also in a blend. I use medium in bulletproof mixture, and us it as blend with anything for espresso. Have not tried it as a cold brew, I prefer more fruit notes for that, but as it cools off at room temperature still very good taste. This batch had hints of notes of dried fruit and dark chocolate. I have not had any problem whatsoever with Bodhi Guats, they are some of my favorites.
