Guatemala Antigua Finca El Valle by Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: July 2008
Origin: Antigua valley, Guatemala. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Mildly tangy aromatic notes, with soft hints of nuts and chocolate. A bright acidity is softened and rounded by faint suggestions of fruit. The balance continues in the cup with tart lime tones standing out in front, fading to a pleasant nuttiness. Hints of chocolate, spice and aromatic wood linger in the long, dry finish.

Notes: From the valley surrounding the colonial town of Guatemala Antigua, Antigua is Guatemala's most celebrated coffee origin. Batdorf & Bronson is a leading wholesale quality-oriented specialty roaster with operations in both Olympia, Washington and Atlanta, Georgia. Visit or call 800-955-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: For those looking for a pleasingly straightforward breakfast cup.
