  • Guatemala Injerto Noble Age

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: September 2013
Origin: Huehuetenango growing region, Guatemala. Price: NT $2,000/8 ounces

Blind Assessment: Intense, bright but balanced. Complex lime- and orange-toned citrus, night-blooming flowers, a hint of hazelnut and crisp roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart acidity; smooth, silky mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but lingers in a quietly rich finish.

Notes: This is a special auction lot produced by El Injerto, one of Guatemala’s most celebrated coffee farms, from the admired Pacamara variety of arabica. Pandora Noble Age is El Injerto’s description for a coffee produced only from very ripe, dark red, almost purple fruit, when sugar content is at or around its maximum. Fong Da Coffee is one of the oldest and most distinguished specialty roasters in Taiwan, founded in 1956 and offering a wide variety of single-origin and blended coffees.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy classic coffees driven by an intense but sweetly poised acidity.


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.
