I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.

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.

Roast

 
Dark

Slightly darker than the beans in the original review.

Aroma

Aroma clearly indicates distinct Mexican flavor of these beans. Vibrant. Nice complexity.

Well-balanced acidity; lively without being to bright.

Nice, medium to full body; average mouthfeel, hint of chewiness.

Very well-balanced, distinctive, bucolic, earthy Mexican flavor. Nice acidity and a touch of spice.

Very pleasant finish. Nice aftertaste. Leaves you wanting more.

Overall

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.
