  • Fair Trade Organic Guatemala

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: June 2003
Origin: Huehuetenango growing region, north-central Guatemala Price: $11.95/12oz

Blind Assessment: High-toned, sweet, light-footed and delicate, yet rich and deeply dimensioned. Lemon and red-wine notes in the aroma, in the cup red wine, cherry and a shimmer of flowers. Long, complex finish.

Notes: Purchased at A&P, ground in sealed 12-ounce foil bag with one-way valve; $10.65 per pound. Produced by indigenous Maya members of the ASOBAGRI cooperative. Certified organically grown and fair-traded, meaning farmers have been paid an economically sustainable price for this coffee based on internationally established price guidelines. Bucks County Coffee has managed to stay close to its micro-roasting roots throughout its expansion from a small roasting machine in a carriage house to one of the country's largest regional specialty coffee chains.

Who Should Drink It: This extraordinary coffee should seduce just about everyone, even those who prefer a lower key or darker roasted cup.


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.
