Roast: Dark Review Date: September 2003
Origin: Huehuetenango growing region, western Guatemala Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The good news is this moderately dark roast displays a rich depth of sensation and spicy, smoky notes in the nose. The bad news: The roast also imposes a rather gritty, astringent finish.

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. White Horse Coffee & Tea is a small, quality-oriented roaster operated by fine artist Kristin Lusk and her husband Leo. Visit or call 877-752-2360 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: The full body and deep dimension makes this coffee a good choice for those French-pressers who enjoy a heavily textured cup. Should persevere nicely through milk and sweetener.


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.
