Roast: NA Review Date: June 2000
Origin: San Rafael Urias farm, Antigua valley, south-central Guatemala. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: The essence of brisk: a light, bright, acidy cup. Dry tones dominate the sweet undercurrents. A shimmer of flowers, a wisp of smoke, a hint of tart, winey fruit. Pleasant but thinly dimensioned.

Notes: The essence of brisk: a light, bright, acidy cup. Dry tones dominate the sweet undercurrents. San Rafael Urias is an old, highly respected farm in the flat, central portion of the Antigua valley. From the 1999 crop. Premier Roasters packages its coffees whole bean in nitrogen-flushed fiberboard cans.

Who Should Drink It: An archetypal American breakfast coffee of the three-cups-with-pancakes variety. Coffee drinkers of the old school should enjoy its dry, light-bodied brightness. Drip-brew it regular strength and take it black.

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.
