Guatemalan Medium Roast


Comfort in a cup: rich dark chocolate, brown sugar swirls, and hints of sweet orange all wrapped up in perfect balance… yummmmm


The original force that started it all,
this delightful cup was the starting line for Chica Bean.

It was through this captivating brew, full of balanced body with rich dark chocolate, sweet orange, and brown sugar swirls, that we realized these women from Jalapa, Guatemala weren’t producing just any old cup of coffee; they’re creating something special. The only thing that may be even more delectable than actually drinking this coffee is the knowledge that this quality is transforming the community, opening opportunities, and empowering farmers.

The Medium Roast is the preferred coffee in Guatemala. It is a clean cup that gives a smooth body and a roast profile light enough to find intriguing flavor notes. We recommend always trying the first 2 sips of your cup of coffee without any additives to experience its natural goodness, but after, if its your preference, a bit of sweetener doesn’t harm this coffee. Depending on brew method and taste, a splash of milk could work but this coffee is best enjoyed black.


Your bag of Medium 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 and also the batch it was roasted in. Check your bag to find out who produced your coffee!
