Roast: Medium Review Date: June 2006
Origin: Antigua valley, central Guatemala Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Simple but classically appealing coffee. High-toned, sweetly spicy aroma with tight-knit suggestions of flowers, chocolate and sweet tomato that amplify in the richly acidy cup. The finish stays on the roundly hearty side of astringent.

Notes: Antigua, from the valley surrounding the colonial town of Guatemala Antigua, is Guatemala's most celebrated coffee origin. Reading Coffee Roasters specializes in "gourmet coffees medium roasted the old fashioned European way - Never bitter or burnt!" according to its website.

Who Should Drink It: A less-is-more sort of coffee for modern classicists.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
