  • Guatemalan Antigua, 1999

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: July 1999
Origin: Guatemala Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: A gently bright coffee, sweet and alive with spice and smoke in the aroma and floral innuendo in the cup. The floral tones linger in the aftertaste. Just enough resonance and depth to maintain authority.

Notes: Elegant rather than forceful, this is a superb but somewhat atypical Antigua. Boyd is a large, quality-oriented wholesale roaster founded in 1900.

Who Should Drink It: Elegant rather than forceful, this is a superb but somewhat atypical Antigua. Should do splendidly in a drip preparation for mornings and afternoons.

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.
