Pretty delicious coffee, we received the Guatemala Waykan Light Roast and it turned out really great though we originally thought we liked medium roasts. Is it because of the coffee bean origin that the flavor profile comes out more boldly with more delicious nutty and light chocolate notes? (rather than the level of roast?)
Quite liked this one!
Very smooth and light. Could be a little bolder.
This was a nice choice we are enjoying it
Like this coffee a lot. "Balanced" is perhaps the best descriptor. All I can say is send more like this, please!
Im really enjoying this coffee! What a lovely way to look forward to my mornings
Was pleasantly surprised with this. I was a little surprised to receive a light roast based on the input I gave on my preferences. Very smooth and drinkable. Wasn’t really any fruity or citrus notes that I typically dislike in a light roast. There was a hint of apple as described that I did enjoy. Very pleasant!
As another reviewer said, I selected medium~dark in my preferences and was sent this light roast as my first coffee.
This was a little too acidic for our tastes.
Gets sour as it cools.
Very fruity and vibrant, beautiful brew color in a Chemex.
Kind of thin texturally.
Confirmed that we prefer a bit more roast.
Still a delightful departure from our norm.
Kept frozen, blade-ground, pour over prep.
It was exceedingly fresh! Had a nice flavor, no bitter aftertaste. Not so sure about the chocolate and red apple flavors.
I like medium to dark roasts so I'm not sure why I was sent a light roast as my first bag. I felt like there just wasn't much flavor to this. Not super light in color, but definitely light in flavor. Almost no bitterness.
I really loved. I think I tend to prefer medium roasts, but this coffee was great on the lighter end. Liked it more and more as it cooled, which I often notice with lighter roasts. Milk Chocolate was very obvious, could taste the Hibiscus, and body was creamy. Didn't get the Red Apple.
A little light.
Too much top note,
Not enough depth.
After taste oddly sweet.
Prefer more full bodied and smooth
It’s good, I just need to try more coffee to give it a fair comparison
A beautiful light roast.
A little too tangy for my tastes. I tried it with both Chemex and Aeropress.
This was fine coffee, 3 stars
One of the best light roast coffees I've ever had. I died and went to heaven! Chocolaty, balanced acidity!! Good work Good Folks!
Delicious! Good roast, balanced acidity. Thanks!
Loved this bean. Felt it was a lot tastier in the standard brewed coffee pot than the Breville Espresso machine. Great got regular coffee!
Extremely smooth and very flavorful!
Very smooth, quite delicious! Thank you for picking a nice coffee!
Really liked the flavors on this one. With a dialed in V60 i got a nice sweetness.
Didnt love this. Not a lot of standout characteristics and had a generally acrid bitterness regardless of brew method.
It was a nice coffee, but not my absolute favorite. It was a little too earthy for my taste.
Full body but still interesting. One of the best
Pretty good! Tasted apples and chocolate
I thought it was a really solid cup of coffee, wasn't knocked off my feet, but it was consistent and made really solid coffee. Generally brewed with aeropress, although did a few cups with v60, and it produced a nice cup both ways.
i enjoyed the balanced taste. it is a good coffee for someone looking for the chocolate flavor. i prefer more fruit-forward notes
Good coffee, but not amazing. It was fine, but lacked complexity of flavors.
Smooth taste, not bitter at all. pleasant aroma. Not overpowering in taste. Slight chocolate tones present.
Meh. Really nothing special
Enjoyed it but prefer something brighter. In general I like bright coffees that give a "zip" when drinking
Brewed as V60 or Cheney, I found the flavor profile be good, but nothing memorable. Overall, a solid cup of coffee served black.
Excellent espresso. One of my favorites so far.
This was good. I am still trying to figure out how to make a good cup of coffee but this is a great first pick by these guys.
Loved it fresh as pour over, also perfect for cold brew. This was so good that I haven't been willing to share it with anyone.
Great roast. Balanced flavors. I loved it so much I bought one direct.
Ok. Not the best.
Being new to 'home' espresso, this turned out very good (when I managed to pull in the 27/32 second range). Looking forward to trying others!
Really smooth coffee that does not require creamer or milk for me. I brew on Gold standard brewing in my Breville and the coffee comes out perfect for me to drink. Love that its a bit sweet and a bit nutty. Love it!
Never was quite able to dial this one in. Even in the chemex the clarity wasn’t quite what I wanted. I’m sure it’s user error
It was a nice light and smooth balanced coffee in both drip coffee maker and french press. Slight biscuit flavor although maybe a bit mild.
I really enjoyed having a light roasted coffee from this region and from this new roaster. I tend to only buy African sourced beans and so it was a pleasant surprise to give this one a whirl and to enjoy it so much!
It was a bit too light/flavorless
It was good. Wasn't the best I have had and definitely far from the worst.
Hands down one of the best coffees I've ever tasted. I don't usually go for Guatemala as an origin but this coffee has changed that. Couldn't get enough.
Good balanced cup that was light and not too acidic.
I thought I tasted some butterscotch or toffee in this one. It is pretty nice. I thought I requested all natural process coffees when I signed up, though. There's something that I can't quite put my finger on with natural process. It's like a juiciness in the flavor and something that almost feels thicker or more viscous mouthfeel wise. Washed coffees sometimes taste to me like there is a bitterness and/or shallowness to the flavor, almost similar to a soup that would benefit from a little butter and salt.
Had nice chocolate notes. Balanced but rather simple.
Tasty light roast with a nice tartness. Not the most unique flavor but enjoyed it nonetheless!
This coffee was a bit to sour for me. The notes didn’t seem to stand up to the sourness. It was overpowering.
Good flavor. Smooth and mellow. I like more pronounced flavors in my coffees, but this is a good palate cleanser between more adventurous roasts.
Smooth and balanced. Enjoyed.
Really loved this pick. It brewed well in both the drip method and french press. Full flavored body without a finish that lingered too long.
Not very flavorful, kind of bland.
Loved the roast level, all around good coffee. I prefer fruitier coffees though. Super good though
It’s alright. Not as bright as I would have hoped but still enjoyable.
Flavor was decent, a bit monotone. But, boy oh boy, this packed a punch of caffeine.
Brewed for latte's and cappuccino's. Very smooth, no hints of bitterness. Definitely a slight chocolate taste, but I failed to extract the apple taste. Would recommend for a smooth, semi-sweet espresso.
It was good, not as good as some of the African single origins, but better than some of the darker espresso's I've had.
Bright and tasty. We enjoyed it hot and cold.
Still getting used to making tasting notes on coffee. Loved this Good Folks bag. Smooth and medium body that I enjoyed via Chemex. Would definitely have again or drink similar!
Missing the complex chocolate notes that southern Mexican and Central American tend to benefit from.
Incredible, round, silky
Great roast with some development of darker roast flavors but not over roasted with light body from pour over and red fruits acidity in the aroma but lower acidity in the cup and flatter flavor than expected.
Excellent milky body, flavor works well both as espresso and brewed. Profile tends a bit sharp and sour on the finish but also balanced with a decent chocolates sweetness.
Didn't love this one.
This one worked really well for cold brew
Very good, balanced and bright. Want a touch more clarity. Very happy though.
Really bright. Slightly lacking in body
Wasn’t very bright, seemed like a normal old coffee.
Delicious! Fresh, light and full of flavor. No unpleasant acidity at all. Would buy again!
This was so flavorful but delicate at the same time. I could drink this all the time and never get tired of it.
Like that it tastes fresh.
Well balanced, love the milk chocolate flavor.
I originally gave this coffee a 3 star rating only because of a long lasting aftertaste. After much thought, I decided to change it to a 4 star based on taste alone. The flavor is way to good for a 3 star. The aftertaste is a small price to pay for a very good cup of coffee.
Great for a flavorful afternoon cup. I usually like deeper flavor notes for the morning.
Not as pronounced flavors as I was hoping for.
A solid array of flavors. Nicely heavy on the end, but not overpowering.
Roasted darker than I would want in a light roast. Overall doesn't seem to be the quality level of an exclusive tier coffee.
