Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: July 1997
Origin: Guatemala Price: NA

Blind Assessment: For most the acidity was the main act here. Some found it pleasantly bright ("nice, winy and sharp," according to one); others complained it was too sharp, throwing off the balance of the coffee, and perhaps astringent in the aftertaste. Supporting virtue: Most found this coffee substantial in body. "An excellent example of a Guatemala," according to one. But judging from the scores, the majority may harbor reservations.

Notes: Not overly refined, but undoubtedly powerful, with a substantial body. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee.

Who Should Drink It: Not overly refined, but undoubtedly powerful.


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.
