    Santa Clara, California
  • Guatemala El Socorro y Anexos Palo Blanco

Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2010
Origin: Palencia, Guatemala Department, Guatemala. Price: $14.00/16 oz.

Blind Assessment: Balanced, complete coffee with a straightforward aromatic complex persisting from aroma through finish: peach, citrus, flowers, complimented by a delicately sweet chocolate. Rich acidity, syrupy body.

Notes: Grown on the award winning farm El Socorro y Anexos, this lot is made up entirely of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. Barefoot Coffee Roasters itself is an award-winning small-batch roasting company that claims to be "Making sweet coffee love… in the heart of Silicon Valley."

Who Should Drink It: Balance and strong structure in a classic Guatemala.
