Ghost Roaster - Carlos Cadena: Anaerobic Washed, Mexico (340g)
It is the second year of Ghost Roaster working with the folks from La Nacional Coffee Imports to bring in coffee from producer Carlos Cadena of Finca Huehuetepan. Last year, Ghost Roaster got the opportunity to roast both a washed Typica from Carlos, as well as the Cup of Excellence award winning coffee. The entirety of this lot was bought by Ghost Roaster, a first for this smaller roaster! This Mundo Maya variety coffee is a beautiful balance of clean sweetness and depth of character with being both given time in an anaerobic atmosphere but being a washed coffee. Macadamia nut overlays a raspberry jam sweetness and slight tart character, followed by the depth of raisin and brown sugar to round out this complex yet comforting cup.
This is an amazing everyday coffee option if you like treating everyday as a special one (wink wink). We’ve tried all of Carlos Cadena’s coffees and Ghost Roaster does an exceptional job finding their most suitable profile.
Grabbed this bag because I dug the logo and enjoyed the story from the 8 Ounce rep. This is pretty good seatbelt/daily driver coffee. You're not going to get blown away by the flavor profile but it's something you can serve to your starbucks or tim hortons friends. Could do with a little more flavor punch IMO, but all said a great purchase.
