Santa Isabel Guatemala by PT's Coffee Roasting Co. Review |
Roast: Light Review Date: September 2008
Origin: Santa Rosa Department, Guatemala. Price: $12.95/12oz

Blind Assessment: Simple, lush aroma with nut and molasses notes. In the cup syrupy mouthfeel, smooth acidity, powerful sweetness. The molasses notes round richly toward a floral-toned honey, balanced by a crisp, dry walnut. Finishes richly with a continued dry, edge-of-astringent walnut note.

Notes: This coffee is Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. A specially prepared, all-sun-dried lot from Finca Santa Isabel. Tactfully roasted at PT's Coffee, where the motto is "without the love, it's just coffee." Visit or call 888-678-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Honeyish and floral sweet yet authoritatively dry, should please those who like beverages that combine sweetness and bite.


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.
