CHICA BEAN

A Dark Roast is the preferred coffee of those who like to describe their morning brew as strong or, as my mom would claim, a cup of mud. Through a carefully monitored roasting process, Evelin is able to highlight the intense toasted flavors that are typical of Dark Roasts without burning all the natural flavor out of the seeds. She does not simply turn the coffee beans from green to brown; she strategically guides them through a rollercoaster of heat and air until the sugars naturally found inside are perfectly caramelized.

TRACEABILITY

  • Farm Gate: $2.40 (Parchment)
  • Chica Bean Production: $4.05
  • C Price at purchase: $2.157 FOB (Green/Oro)

COFFEE SUGGESTIONS

With its rich roasted flavors and heavy body, the Dark Roast is ideal for those who search for a charged black coffee or enjoy adding milk. We recommend always trying the first 2 sips of your coffee without any additives to experience its natural goodness, but after, if its your preference, this coffee blends beautifully with all compliments. Best prepared in methods that highlight its body, like normal coffee machines, french presses, and Moka Pots.

GUARANTEED SINGLE-ORIGIN TRACEABILITY & FRESHNESS

Your bag of Dark Roast will come from one of the strong female producers listed above. However, with our Espresso, Medium Roast, and Dark Roast, we do not actually know who’s coffee we will be roasting until roast day. These producers are all very small producers and don’t cultivate enough to have their own dedicated product. They are all from the same community and produce quite similar coffee so we can ensure quality throughout the year by leaving sacks sealed until they need to be opened.

It is our promise to always deliver single-origin coffee. That means, we never blend our coffee, not when roasting or before when it’s in green bean form. We maintain strict records to ensure that every single bag of coffee can be traced back to the strong woman who created it as well as the exact batch it was roasted in. Check your bag to find out who produced your coffee!

    I ordered a 12 oz bag of Guatemalan Dark Roast (whole bean) coffee on 5/22/21. The beans were roasted at origin on 5/24 and I opened the bag to smell the freshly roasted beans on 5/27. My coffee beans were produced by Ilcia Aguilar and roasted by Evelin Tupul in Sacatepequez, Guatemala. Extremely satisfied with my order from Chica Bean!

    We’re always satisfied with our Chica Bean orders! The coffee is always fresh, ground well, and smells great! The taste is smooth and delicious with no bitterness. In fact, our palettes so prefer Chica Bean coffee that we can tell the difference between it and store brands immediately. Thank you for doing an amazing job!

    I have only been drinking coffee for about a year (despite living extended periods of time in Brazil, Nicaragua and Guatemala) but I am enjoying these flavors. Having spent time in your area of Guatemala, I can appreciate the support needed by small businesses like yours. I am supporting small coffee growers in Nicaragua as well, so I don’t buy often.
