  • Guatemala El Cuervo

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: December 2004
Origin: Fraijanes growing region, Guatemala Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Low-key, richly pungent aroma: raisins, dried cherries, chocolate. In the cup gently pungent, softly acidy, with a tightly knit complexity, again suggesting dried fruit - raisins, cherries, with a touch of chocolate.

Notes: This coffee represents an ongoing collaboration between a small farm in the Fraijanes region of Guatemala and Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea, a leading, award-winning Chicago-area roaster. Visit or call 888-945-9786 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A fine after dinner coffee, dry enough to complement desserts but rich enough to satisfy on its own.


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.
