  • Guatemala Finca Nueva Armenia

Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2010
Origin: Huehuetenango growing region, Guatemala. Price: $11.75/12 oz.

Blind Assessment: Complex, finely modulated aroma with great sweetness and range: orange, nut, pear perhaps, with hints of flowers at the top. In the cup balanced acidity, round, syrupy mouthfeel. Aromatics simplify a bit, but remain sweet and cocoa-toned. Flowers and orange in particular persist into the finish.

Notes: Certified organically grown by the Reciños family on Finca Nueva Armenia. From trees of the Bourbon and Typica varieties. Counter Culture is a wholesale specialty roaster with an informative and lively website, a commitment to fine coffee and youthful, enthusiastic leadership. Visit or call 888-238-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Classic balance and Guatemala character.
