Guatemala Covadonga by Klatch Coffee Review |
  • Klatch Coffee

    Los Angeles, California
  • Guatemala Covadonga Micro-Lot

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: September 2013
Origin: Antigua Valley, Guatemala. Price: $13.50/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Smooth, layered complexity. Delicate floral notes, nut-toned chocolate, honey, a hint of banana in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweet-toned acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The floral notes in particular surface in a sweet, surprisingly deep finish.

Notes: Produced on Finca Covadonga by farmer Roberto Sanchez. Guatemala’s Antigua Valley produces some of Central America’s most traditional and classic coffees. Klatch Coffee is an award-winning small-batch roasting company in the Los Angeles area whose resident barista and trainer, Heather Perry, won both the 2003 and 2007 United States Barista Championships brewing a Klatch Coffee espresso blend.

Who Should Drink It: A fine exemplar of the sweet lucidity of the celebrated Antigua cup.
