Roaster's Description:

This is a simple and bright coffee with a rustic aroma. You can almost hear the Mexican music playing in the background for a Cinqo de Mayo clebration as you enjoy this lively cup. It's a perfect coffee to start the day!

I previously reviewed the Organic Mexican Chiapas beans from Texas Roast, but I would like to revisit the offering. I recently received another order of the Chiapas, and based on my previous review, these beans were roasted slightly darker.

Mexican varietals remain among my favorite. The Organic Mexican Chiapas from Texas Roast remain a fine representative - nicely roasted, well-balanced, and an overall enjoyable cup of coffee.
