Guatemalan Finca Dos Marias by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: September 2003
Origin: San Marcos growing region, southwestern Guatemala Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The cup is dominated by a simple, rich acidity. The acidy sensation is rather sharp and overbearing when the cup is hot, though it rounds and sweetens as the cup cools, revealing wine-toned fruit and a resonance that could only be guessed at when the cup was hot.

Notes: Finca Dos Marias is an old, impeccably run family-owned farm with impressive social and environmental credentials, including schools and clinics for workers and a large quetzal preserve. It is situated in the high, wet San Marcos region, near the border with Chiapas, Mexico. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles. Visit or call 800-223-6768 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Slow drinkers. This dry, powerfully acidy coffee is a purist's cup, challenging and bracing.


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.
