Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: May 2003
Origin: Antigua Valley, Guatemala Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Medium bodied but delicate, soft, exquisitely balanced, giddy with sweet fruit tones that may suggest cherry but ultimately express the purity and elegance of a perfectly processed coffee. The finish is sweet, long, and gently rich.

Notes: Antigua, grown in the valley surrounding the picturesque colonial town Guatemala Antigua, is Guatemala's most celebrated coffee. Coffeemaria is a boutique micro-roaster that, via its website, sells coffee roasted to order and same-day shipped. Visit or call 630-289-4496 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of clarity and simplicity in all things.


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.
