Guat Cupping, new roast better taste!

So I was compelled to awake from my slumber this morning to re do my roast profile on our Guatemala. I booted on up the sample roaster, and about 30 mins later I was cupping said Guat. Here are some pics of a very simple/informal cupping on an early Sunday morning.

I like the new roast for this, it is much cleaner and sweeter than the previous. In my opinion the previous Guat was a bit too light (it was almost our lightest roast!), so now its a tad bit darker. The result is a nuttier cup, but still it has plenty of fruit hints and a chocolate aftertaste.

Once I finalize the new roast, the Guat will be on sale with any order of a pound or more.

Part 3 of our day to day (ish) quest for better latte art, again using an 8 cup La Pavoni Romantica.

I got a snowman... and accidentally an ugly swan, where as Ash is starting to get better at her hearts.
