Coffee beans from Central America exhibit mild & pleasant acidity, have a clean & smooth mouthfeel, and have floral, citrusy aroma. They usually have a chocolaty, nutty, & fruity taste with notes of honey, caramel, & citrus.
These coffee beans are quite versatile and are suitable for everything from a light to a dark French roast. For example, a high-altitude, microlot would be best suited to a light roast to highlight its unique flavors. Whereas, a Central American blend would do better with a medium or medium-dark roast to enhance the chocolaty & nutty nature.
Central American beans can be brewed in a variety of ways. But we recommend espresso & French press for medium to dark roasts. Light roasts will fare better in manual pour overs. Of course, Aeropress is also a great match for the versatility of these beans.
Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Nicaragua produce some of the best single-origin Arabica beans in Central America, and we highly recommend you try them.
