Blind Assessment: A quiet, very soft coffee with delicate but lush aromatics. In the nose distinct flowers, lemon, butter. The cup displays a gently bright acidity, silky, buttery mouthfeel, and a finely balanced bouquet of coffee fruit, cocoa and lemon. The cocoa softens toward chocolate in the long finish.

Notes: A prize winner in the 2007 Guatemala Cup of Excellence ( competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed second out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 91.5 from an international jury. Barefoot Coffee Roasters is an award-winning and widely recognized small-batch roasting company that describes itself as "a happy little cafe and roastery in the heart of Silicon Valley."
