This coffee will be fresh roasted for you. We expect Dillanos Coffee Roasters will roast and ship this coffee in 1-2 business days depending on their roasting schedule.
The Guatemala Rio Azul was carefully roasted for you by Dillanos Coffee Roasters. Grown at more than 1,500 meters by the 150 families of the Rio Azul Cooperative, this Direct Trade coffee's Caturra and Typica varieties represent the best of the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala. This cup is well balanced, with notes of milk chocolate and rye-like aroma.
Not my favorite. Couldn't get a medium flavor from it. A little to dark for me. At least I like lattes so I could just add more cream and honey and it tasted good.

Ok but not great.
Love at first sip. Still may need to tweak the pourover method for this, but I'm liking it a lot. Chocolate. Strength. Great first cup of the morning.
This one tasted pretty weak unless we brewed it VERY strong.
Brewed in Chemex. I great, clean cup of coffee.
nutty, warm, chocolatey
Taste ok I guess, not my favorite
Good flavor, but a long, bitter aftertaste. Maybe not so much milk, but dark, even Baker's chocolate. Although I love Guatemala coffees, not my favorite.
The coffee was very good, but a little malty for my taste. I would love a coffee that was just like this but less malty, and maybe a little more bitter. So a dark chocolate vs. milk chocolate flavor.
a little bland, but good medium body
This coffee was pretty close to perfect.

Our satisfaction was complete with the Sumatra coffee, offering a unique and distinct flavor, unlike any other. Then the second shipment comes, Rio Azul that gave us a most pleasant and smooth brew, which we are thoroughly enjoying also. We look forward to new, upcoming shipments. Thanks for a great adventure!
Loved the chocolate notes. My favorite coffees tend to have chocolate notes and are from Central America. Very nice pleasant cup of coffee.
I liked the flavor of the Sumatra from Anodyne better. The Guatemala did not have a pungent aftertaste like the Sumatra but overall the flavor felt over roasted for a light to medium roast. Not my favorite Guatemala. still a decent coffee though!
It grew on me over time. Nice dark roast taste. Not perfect but pretty good!
Solid coffee. It was easy to dial this in for espresso and was great with milk. This coffee also makes excellent cold brew that is very chocolatey.
I liked this coffee, but not as much as the Brazilian coffee.. This coffee has an after taste that seems a little bitter. I did not really taste anything or smell anything that was like chocolate either. I enjoyed drinking it though. Thank you it was a good choice!
In one word - boring. I tried several grind sizes and water temps with my V60. Couldn't dial in a cup I really liked. Hints of chocolate but very one note and toward the bitter side. No sweetness. I wouldn't buy this one again.
This was amazing. This is exactly what I like. If you guys can send me stuff like this all the time, I'll stay subscribed for a long time.
The label on the coffee I received matches the roaster and title, but is labeled light roast - I enjoyed it very much though.
Lighter than I usually like, but good flavor and smooth.
I found this Guatemala to be delicious! I usually like a darker bean for those earthy notes but this was quite tasty. Also the acidity was perfect, usually lighter roasts are too acidic for me.
First of all, can I just say how much I love this service?! I've tried a few different coffee subscriptions and haven't liked any but this one! Anyway, these beans are mild with no lingering aftertaste, which I LOVE! The reason I gave it 4 stars is that there really isn't any pizzazz. The citrus notes are a tad TOO mild. Overall, it's a great cup though. I'd love it as a daily drinker.
This coffee was ok, but too subtle for me. I thought it was a little toasty, supposed to be light roast but it was more medium. It is too "balanced". It lacks the brightness and complexity in flavor, things that I look for in coffee. I brew my coffee pour over.
this one is nearly a 3, but it was overroasted and pushing oil in the package. the potential of the coffee was there as the flavor was ok, but the brew was a bit chaotic and the flavor profiles bold, not subtle. just too roasty, marked a light roast, but i would call it medium or beyond. i ould like something lighter and more subtle in the future.
I am still working on figuring out how to talk about the things I liked. I really really enjoyed this one, though! It was acidly balanced and felt full bodied without taking over my entire palate. Awesome mouth feel and finish. I had trouble finding the fruit notes, but I tried/still trying. Overall, again, I had a great experience with this one.
I think I must've gotten part of an over roasted batch. It was very oily and dark.
Better than the previous order. It was light on the palate and the roast was just right.It was neither sour or too earthy, definitely less citrus taste than the previous roast. I brewed this as a pour over and espresso.
It wasn't light roast. Tasted like burned beans.
This was a decent cup of coffee. Very balanced...a very reliable cup each day.
Decent coffee, but a bit bland for my taste. I'd like a bit more character in my cup.
I'd like to rate this 4.5 stars but, alas, I cannot. In any case, this is another great coffee roast. It's flavor is fantastic and it goes down smooth!
Oddly, this bag is labeled as a light roast, but the beans look and taste more medium to dark. Closer to brewing, it makes an okay cup of coffee, maybe at times showing subtle hints of roasted coconut. However, I feel it has a much more pleasant and distinct flavor at lower temperatures. I like letting this one cool down, to 120 degrees or lower, where it tastes much rounder and somewhat sweeter. Though I haven't tried, I'd venture to guess this would make a decent cold brew. Also, just from the bag, these beans smells really nice.
Love this. Very balanced. Smooth.
A fine coffee, but a little bitter and "dirty" tasting. No hints of citrus that I could tell.
The darker roast left the bean a little oily and overall lacking the punch of the citrus notes
Too light for my taste. Not robust enough.
Overall good, but a little too earthy for an every-morning cup. I did enjoy the smell of grinding them a lot though
For a "light" roast, this coffee has a surprisingly charred taste. I did not find it to be "fantastically balanced."
A bit too dark and chocolate for my taste.
This has been my favorite coffee so far. The citrus really stands out and the coffee seems very strong for a light roast, which is a good thing for me!
A little too acidic and zippy for my tastes but good nonetheless
This is probably my least favorite coffee that has been sent so far. Tastes a little bitter.
We really enoyed this coffee but it was a bit bitter or too citrus-y for us.

My husband loved this coffee! Great job. I would maybe like something a hint chocolate-y or bolder, but not too acidic. We both have sensitive stomachs to acidic coffee so the last roast was perfect. We have really enjoyed it.
Great coffee! Nice rich, balanced taste!
Very dark for a "light" roast, almost a french roast and, in my opinion, not the best balance.(I brew mostly pour-over - this was better in french press but still not my favorite!)
Tasted burned to a crisp. tar-like. old school roasting style.
Really well blended.
Lovely flavours from my Chemex! Great first coffee experience!
A bit of a citrus aftertaste threw my off at first but this blend went well in the press as well as pour-over
