  • Guatemala El Socorro Y Anexos Cup of Excellence

Roast: Light Review Date: December 2008

Blind Assessment: Elegantly delicate, lightly floral aroma, with tartly-sweet acidity and medium body. The delicacy carries into the cup with notes of sweet citrus rounding and softening toward candied-nut. Very clean finish, with a slight astringent note in the long.

Notes: A prize winner in the 2008 Guatemala Cup of Excellence ( competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed fourth out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 89.60 from an international jury. This coffee is comprised of the Maracaturra variety of Arabica, a cross between the giant-beaned Maragogipe and Caturra, a selection of the prestigious Bourbon variety. Caff? Pronto is a cafe-roastery and an espresso bar with a mission that emphasizes quality and service. Visit or call 888-697-7667 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy lively elegance in a very light-roasted prize-winning coffee.
