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

Blind Assessment: Most found this Antigua a bit underpowered, perhaps owing to its relatively light body (noted by almost everyone). Some found compensating virtues: chocolaty, spicy, nutty notes. Others praised a soft, sweet smoothness. Still others objected: "a bit lifeless"; "not so happening"; "thin"; and most Originsal, "straightlaced[!]". Only two found outright failings: a slight sourness. One delivered an inspired characterization of the subtle fragrance: "Dancing on fruity."

Notes: Light body with chocolaty, spicy and nutty notes. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee.

Who Should Drink It: At its best this coffee dances, though on thin ice.


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.
