I LOVE this coffee, so much so that I'm writing a review. I'm a big fan of Starbucks Chiapas but it's seasonal or at least not always available, and my one regret is that it's a dark roast instead of medium. I found this Fair Trade Archer Farms Coffee recently and I am really impressed. I prefer the rich, chocolatey, and nutty flavors of coffee from this region, and the roast (I would describe it as full city) serves this one well without burning away the nuance like a dark roast. I dont own a Chemex, but this product might be better served by brewing it in a French press or reusable drip filter so the full body is better retained instead of the oils being absorbed away by a paper filter. (I use ~72g/L for FP and a comparatively weak ~48g/L for drip) It makes a great espresso shot too. Highly recommended if you like this flavor profile. You might look elsewhere if you're seeking bright, acidic coffees though.
I'm not a hardcore coffee/espresso connoisseur but this is one of my most fave beans. The convenience factor and organic/fair trade only helps me in deciding my purchase. I grind it to fine espresso size and pull a shot through my Gaggia classic. I love the taste even compared to some of my local freshly roasted beans. I find it more of a darker roast and don't find it bitter for espresso compared to many other beans I've tried.
This is the only coffee I buy and brew at home. I don't live near a Target and so I have to buy it online and await the UPS man, but it is worth it. The coffee doesn't have a bite and it tastes so smooth! I started buying it originally because it was organic and fair trade. I stuck with it because it tastes the best. It is my standard for coffee.
Archer Farms' Tierra del Sol is an organic, fair trade coffee bean and the bag states that it's a medium roast that's bold with cocoa notes and smokiness. The aroma upon opening the bag was decent; not stale, but indicative that these beans have sat on a shelf past their peak. The aroma definitely shows signs of the advertised cocoa notes, but not much of the bold or smoky claims. I've taste tested this coffee both black and with a dash of cream and sugar—brewed in a French press both times. The body, without cream and sugar, was light and palatable, and it never felt thin or watery. With cream, the body was approaching medium. Solid all around. The flavors, both black and dressed up, were commendable, but not fantastic. Highly reminiscent of a roasted cacao bean. Semi-bitter chocolate flavors upfront, and a surprisingly smoky, earthy aftertaste. A little on the acidic side overall, but not super off-putting by any means. The acidity seemed to subside upon adding some cream. I bought this coffee solely for its price tag. Under $7 for organic, whole bean coffee is quite a deal and I needed to find something affordable to make iced coffee with during these upcoming summer months. I gave this coffee a 3 out of 5 rating because while it's not a bad coffee by any means, it's not a fantastic one either. If you're buying whole bean organic, there's a slew of better options. However, compared to its price-range competitors, Tierra del Sol is probably the favorable choice. It gets my recommendation in the value department.
This coffee is an exceptional value. The taste is not bitter in any sense, but instead is almost like (dark) chocolate. It's still coffee, but there is a noticeably chocolate taste mixed in as well. Which, at least to me, means that I can easily drink this with no milk and hardly any sugar.
