Coffee Review - Guatemala Hunapu Antigua by Temple Coffee
Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2010
Origin: Antigua valley, central Guatemala Price: $15.00/12 oz.

Blind Assessment: Aroma and flavor are lush yet crisply authoritative. Tartly sweet notes of berry and lemon, white floral notes and a hint of milk chocolate in both aroma and cup. Buoyantly juicy acidity, syrupy mouthfeel, long, sweet finish with continued suggestions of berry and milk chocolate.

Notes: This extraordinary coffee comes solely from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica, which on certain farms on certain years can produce coffees of particularly brilliant balance, sweetness and complexity. The Antigua Valley of Guatemala is one of the most famous and certainly one of the most beautiful coffee growing regions in the world. With two coffee houses located in California's state capitol Sacramento, Temple Coffee recently transitioned from serving coffee roasted by others to roasting its own.

Who Should Drink It: An impressive coffee, as pure as it is lavish.
