Disclosure: Pull & Pour received coffee samples for this post, however, as always, all opinions are 100% my own.
I’m all about wild, experimental coffees with crazy flavor profiles. I also really like to come back to classic, washed coffees though that are balanced and approachable. I love those coffees to be clean, rich, and sweet, which is why I was so excited to find this Guatemalan coffee from Sunday Coffee Project, which is just that. This coffee is the February 21, 2022 feature through the Pull & Pour Coffee Club and a truly delicious coffee.
The coffee began with a sweet fragrance of rich chocolate, honey, and mild citrus. The flavor featured notes of semi-sweet chocolate, caramel, and creamy citrus undertones. There was a crisp, staccato acidity and a smooth mouthfeel. The caramel sweetness was supported by rich chocolate undertones. One of the coffee’s greatest strengths was its flexibility. I’ve tried it in pour over, AeroPress, espresso, and more and have enjoyed it with every brew. Each method brings out a different accent in the coffee—the espresso featured wonderful citrus, the AeroPress brought out its chocolate structure, and the pour over accented its sweetness.
The Bottom Line
This Guatemalan from Sunday Coffee Project found the perfect balance between being approachable and clean, while also being exciting and unique. It was incredibly fun to explore and is one of those coffees it’s hard to “mess up.” I have yet to have a bad cup with it!
