Coffee Review - Guatemala Huehuetenango from Cup to Cup Coffee
89
  • Cup to Cup Coffee Roasters

    Savannah, Georgia
  • Guatemala Huehuetenango

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: June 2010
Origin: Huehuetenango growing region, Guatemala. Price: $6.00/8 oz.
 

Blind Assessment: Aromas of cocoa, aromatic wood and butter complicated by hints of nut and baking spices. In the cup gentle yet sustained acidity, round balance and cherry-like fruit and chocolate notes, with the cherry becoming particularly explicit as the cup cools. In the finish the chocolate turns bittersweet under the influence of a mild astringency.

Notes: This coffee is Certified Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Produced by CODECH (Coordinadora de Organizaciones de Desarrollo de Concepcion Huista) an organization composed of four coffee producing groups in the admired Huehuetenango growing region. With the motto, "Where one cup leads to another," Cup to Cup Coffee Roasters is a small coffee roasting company dedicated to providing fresh roasted coffee beans to the people of the Savannah area.

Who Should Drink It: Roundly balanced, versatile cup with pleasing cherry and chocolate notes. Will likely take to whitener well.

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.
