This is the Mayan Magic Espresso brought to you by Higher Grounds Coffee. Combining Fair Trade and Organic certified beans from Guatemala, Sumatra, and Ethiopia, this blend is designed for the perfect espresso at home. As the weather turns and temperatures rise, the Mayan Magic also shines as cold brew or iced coffee. This medium dark espresso has a dried tart cherry acidity, cocoa body and a bittersweet chocolate finish.
For espresso, this coffee was acrid and had great difficulty producing crema which would be flavorful past burnt notes. Packaging quality left much to be desired for someone who makes espresso at home and likes to savor roasts over more than one week.
Berry taste is too strong
Best so far. More like this?
Love it! Dark chocolate is so strong
This was a dark roast that both my wife and I like. The combination of dark roast and some sour fruity notes is great
There's a strange sour aftertaste. We definitely don't love it. Also, curious as to why it's called "Mayan Magic".
This coffee was really extraordinary, please send us this one more often!
This is listed on bag as Dark Roast. It is not a dark roast in any sense. It's actually kinda light. So In that perspective it's a downer. If you disregard the label, it's a pretty tasty coffee. Nothing jumps out as too special though.
too bitter. did not enjoy this one
Not strong enough
We really loved this coffee! Thank you!
very smooth..my favorite so far
too acidic fruity for us.
Too dark and acid.
Not bad, low acidity to me and I usually love that. Just seemed kind slightly boring to me, didn’t seem rich.
Not a fan of fruity coffees
Ok pull, a bit too fruity for my taste.
We’re not fans, didn’t get any fruit or brightness out of it. The acid notes weren’t great. To earthy and dark.
This is some of the best coffee I've ever had! The cherry and chocolate notes balance each other out so well, I truly felt like I was drinking liquid chocolate covered cherries! I will order it again for sure!
Great crema, velvety
Good coffee but I think the roast didn't work for us. Too light.
I enjoyed this when making it into a latte, but I did not like the flavor when it was just a shot of espresso. It was sweet in the latte, but almost watery by itself.
One of my favorites!
I do not like the taste!
Too acidic for home espresso even after several adjustments. This was much better suited for drip coffee.
Not over-roasted like the last couple of shipments. Not the richest flavor, though. Good not great.
Too light and fruity and acidic for my tastes. This would be good for pour over or someone with a flat burr grinder trying to extract a fruit flavor out of the cup for espresso. The beans were not able to produce very much crema, almost as if they were stale.
IT was nice and smooth but too fruity for me.
Pretty average coffee for me. Gets a bit boring after a bit.
Versatile and delicious. Used it as an espresso, americano, drip and all had different complexity but generally chocolate and a bit of caramel.
I really liked the fruity notes but it goes bitter really fast and had a bit of an aftertaste bite. I prefer the coffees with more of a smooth finish.
Dark and smooth. Needs finer grind.
Too dark for me
Very fruit forward. Flavor mellowed out as the beans aged.
Chocolatey and fruity. Great roast level.
Really solid espresso. The dark cherry notes really come through at the end of every sip, even in a latte.
Great espresso. Great flavor, smooth, enjoyable. Not as rich through a Chemex. Not notable enough to desire it again.
What I would call close to a 'classic Italian' style espresso... The robust chocolate notes are great. The touch of acidity isn't what I'm personally looking for, but it makes a good, default, familiar espresso. Punches through milk strongly.
Really good for espresso!
Mad I drank it too fast
Outstanding as an espresso, and in pourover.
It was okay not very exciting, however for a dark roast it was one of the better ones, not bitter at all.
Good, but not great. a nice smooth finish for a latte, but lacked a some punch.
