Blind Assessment: A complex, shifty profile. When the cup is hot, explicit vanilla tones with a hovering suggestion of spice are balanced by a deep-toned, rather pungent tartness. As the cup cools the vanilla sweetens toward caramel and the spice turns vaguely fruity. Perhaps all of the spice and pungency adds up to the famous "smokiness" often attributed to Guatemalas.

Notes: Produced by a co-op of small farmers. This coffee has a complex, shifty profile. When the cup is hot, explicit vanilla tones with suggestion of spice, are balanced by deep-toned, pungent tartness. Produced by the Guaya'b (Mayan: "Mutual Support") cooperative of small farmers. LifeFoods is a new line of organic coffees from White Cloud Mountain Coffee.

Who Should Drink It: If there are classic coffees, then this one is baroque, all squiggles and surprises.
