  • El Durazno "The Peach" Antigua

Roast: Medium Review Date: September 2013
Origin: Antigua Valley, Guatemala. Price: GTQ 100/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Delicately chocolaty with an engaging layered complexity. Nut-toned chocolate, cinnamon, plum, a savory hint of thyme in aroma and cup. Crisp, perfectly balanced acidity; silky mouthfeel. Sweet but gently drying, straightforward finish.

Notes: Produced on the San Sebastian farm in the celebrated Antigua Valley growing region, largely from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. Z&Z Fine Coffees is an independent coffee retailer. Their coffees are roasted with care by Rojocerezo Coffee, a roaster based in Guatemala. Visit www.MiCafe.gt for more information.

Who Should Drink It: An impressive rendition of the delicate chocolate and spice and sweetly balanced acidity for which Antiguas are famous.
