We look forward to Chuito every year! With its big, lush profile of tart fruit, toffee, and chocolate chips, this summertime favorite reminds us of the perfect trail mix. One sip, and you may feel the urge to hike, kayak, and sleep under the stars.
This is our eighth year of carrying this fantastic coffee. We first visited Concepcion Chuito with Luis Pedro Zelaya Zemora in February 2011. He drove us to the highest part of the farm and we looked down at the valley at the parameter of Antigua down below. The coffee wasn't ready to cup at the time, but when samples came a few months later we fell in love with the coffee. Chuito is sure to be a crowd pleaser for those looking for an intensely sweet every day drinker and for those looking for lots of fruit characterisitcs in their cup. This coffee has big body and sweetness so will make both excellent espresso and filter coffee. Three cheers for Chuito!
"The smell is woodsy with hints of richness and toffee to come. The coffee is tart with moderate acidity and slight bitterness."
"This was Absolutely delicious!! Recommend it 100% will definitely purchase again."
"Pretty good. Had it in a sampler. While undoubtedly great on its own, didn't quite like it as much as the others (Lighthouse Roaster's Roaster's Choice, Herkimer's Drip Blend, & Conduit's Columbia). But you won't go wrong by getting it. "
"This is the delicious coffee. We really enjoyed it. It tasted like toasted marshmallows and toffee a bit. Hint of dried cranberry. Very smooth, and would definitely order again. Brewed by pour-over on a v60. Grind was medium-fine."
"I brewed this with my Aero Press. I think this is one of my favorites. The acidity was well balanced. The fruitiness was not overwhelming. Will get the larger bag of this."
"A nice summer coffee, enjoyed as a cold brew but too acidic for my liking"
"I did really enjoy this coffee and would buy it again if it becomes available. "
"Sour at first with a sweet finish, this coffee is the perfect whirlwind on your tongue. Doesn't need anything added, it's sweet enough to drink black. Creamer adds a great flavor and texture, but sweetener is almost too much."
"A very nice coffee different notes of sweeter are enhanced when a little creamer is added. Wonderful on a chilly day outside. All around a great coffee to mix up your coffee selection. "
