Guatemala Huehuetenango by Klatch Coffee Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: September 2013
Origin: Huehuetenango growing region, Guatemala. Price: $13.50/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Balanced; soft but lively. Honey, night-blooming flowers, black cherry, crisp roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart, lively acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Deep, juicy finish.

Notes: Produced from trees of the Caturra and the heirloom Bourbon varieties of Arabica. Huehuetenango is a particularly admired Guatemala growing region. 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 gently balanced, quietly seductive, Bourbon-influenced style of Guatemala.
