If you’re the kind of person who orders butterscotch syrup on your ice cream sundae, this coffee is for you! Guatemala Javier Martinez is round, sweet, and deliciously creamy, like a butterscotch hard candy, with notes of chocolate, toasted hazelnuts and a hint of cherry. Clean, crisp acidity in the finish, like the perfect ruby red grapefruit.
Bluebeard Coffee Roasters is a self-described "253rd wave" coffee roaster and cafe in Tacoma, WA, just south of Seattle proper. Their coffees are distinctive for their toasty, nuanced roasting style, which results in light, sweet, and fruity coffees that have a deliciously robust profile, with a backbone of chocolate and caramel. Bluebeard’s coffee appeals to coffee lovers who really want to enjoy the full flavor spectrum of specialty coffee but prefer a balanced, cozy profile. We call it, "the best of both waves"!
Javier Martinez is a fine example of top-notch coffee from Guatemala’s most well known growing region, Huehuetenango, located in the northern highlands along the border with Mexico. Like this cup, the finest from the region are recognized by their lush bodies, their superb sweetness, and their desserty, fruit-fondue flavors. Reserve a bag of Bluebeard’s brand new Guatemala Javier Martinez, and unwrap the coffee version of a butterscotch candy for your morning. We guarantee it’ll melt in your mouth (not in your mug).
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Very balanced coffee that works well with any brewing method. The chocolate isn't overpowering and it maintains a really nice mouthfeel even 10-12 days after roast. Will definitely buy again.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ An enticing aroma and taste that I can't quite place. Definitely butterscotch and chocolate, but also some kind of fruit, maybe a sweet plum. Made mine in a french press, served with whole milk and some sugar.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This was a pretty good coffee. I tasted more of the milk chocolate and the ruby red/wine taste than I did the butterscotch. Wish I had tasted more of the butterscotch; perhaps brewing differently would help. Smooth and tasty, though. I do like this company in general.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Great coffee! I've never had a coffee that actually tasted like a butterscotch candy. Amazing. Was also rich and complemented by a nice acidic bite. Wish I had more than the sample bag. Brewed french press.|
