Guatemala Cupping: Sneak Peek

Sneak peek from the lab… According to Kenneth:

“We have cupped about twenty Guatemalas with about ten more to go. We’ve encountered a very wide and impressive range of cup profiles, particularly in the way they reflect the cup tendencies of various botanical varieties of Arabica, from deep, meaty Pacamaras to intense, high-toned, perfumy Geshas. Highest rating so far is 95; lowest is 85. The average rating will be quite high, probably close to 90.”

Our September article, featuring coffees from Guatemala, should post on or about next Tuesday, September 3.

Did you know, the first Guatemala we ever rated was a Starbucks Antigua in April, 1997? What do you think it scored?
