Coffee Review - Ixil A'achimbal Guatemala by Coava Coffee
  • Coava Coffee Roasters

    Portland, Oregon
  • Ixil A'achimbal Guatemala

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: June 2011
Origin: Quiche Department, Guatemala. Price: $12.00/250 grams (8.8 oz.)

Blind Assessment: Quietly balanced, sweetly tart: flowers and orangy citrus, a hint of cedar carry from aroma to cup. Round, soft acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel; the tart sweetness extends into a long finish.

Notes: From trees of the traditional Bourbon and Typica varieties of Arabica. Coava is a Portland based coffee roaster that aims to provide quality coffee and the knowledge needed to properly brew that coffee. Visit or call 503-894-8134 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Balanced, quietly lively cup with a subtlety often associated with Guatemala.


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.
