Guatemalan Antigua by McNulty's Tea & Coffee Review |
  • McNulty's Tea & Coffee

    New York, New York
  • Guatemalan Antigua

Roast: Medium Review Date: June 2003
Origin: Antigua Valley, Guatemala Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Seductively sweet, delicately balanced, high-toned. Meyer lemon notes when hot, chocolate and nut as the cup cools. Medium to light-bodied, but pleasingly silky in mouthfeel.

Notes: Sold whole bean in bulk; $9.40/pound. Antigua, grown in the valley surrounding the austere and lovely colonial town Guatemala Antigua, is Guatemala's most celebrated coffee. McNulty's is one of New York's oldest coffee sellers, and certainly one of its most picturesque, although its coffees apparently are now roasted by another firm. Visit or call 800-356-5200 or 212-242-5351 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer subtlety to power.


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.
