Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: September 2003
Origin: Huehuetenango growing region, north-central Guatemala Price: NA

Blind Assessment: This voluptuously round dark roast is a tribute to the roastmaster's art. Opulently and robustly roasty, sweet, and utterly without burned bitterness. Not much nuance, but plenty of sweet, resonant depth and smoky-spicy tones.

Notes: Huehuetenango, a mountainous, rugged growing region near the Mexican border with a relatively dry climate, is a favorite Guatemala growing region among coffee insiders, who value its typically sweet, delicate, fruit-toned cup. The Supreme Bean is a Los Angeles-area wholesale roaster specializing in high-end roasted-to-order espresso blends and single origins. Visit or call 888-288-5282 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those who love dark roasts but don't care for bitterness. This naturally sweet, full-bodied dark roast should be able to handle large quantities of milk, simultaneously making it both an excellent with-milk breakfast cup and a satisfying black after-dinner demitasse.


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.
