Roasted to full city. Worked well in espresso, but really enjoyed the drip coffee and agreed it reminded me of a Costa Rican.
Summary: This Mexican is much better than many I’ve tried over the years, a sign that their coffee industry is responding to demand for higher-quality coffee. If I hadn’t known its origin, I would have guessed it was a Costa Rica. Details: Prep was careful with few defects. Roasted evenly to City++ level. I let it rest 3 days, then cupped. It was a bit delicate, but clean and sweet, like you expect from a good CR. Aroma was slight, but brewed brought forth Vanilla, graham cracker and floral notes with a peach skin acidity note on the finish which I found a little incongruous with the rest of the profile. Next time I plan to roast all the way to FC and see if that pesky twist on the finish goes away. Overall, I like it blended with other Centrals with a little more kick.
