Coffee Review - Guatemala San Pedro by Kaldi's Coffee
  • Kaldi's Coffee Roasting

    St. Louis, Missouri
  • Guatemala San Pedro La Laguna

Roast: Medium Review Date: October 2010
Origin: Lake Atitlan basin, Guatemala. Price: $9.49/12 oz.

Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned fruit in aroma and cup, complemented by complex layers of citrus, butterscotch and pungent aromatic wood. Gently bright acidity, silky mouthfeel. Simplifies in the finish, though hints of nut and chocolate persist.

Notes: Produced in the spectacular mountain basin surrounding Guatemala's Lake Atitlan by small-holding producers from trees of the Bourbon, Caturra and Typica varieties. Founded in 1994, Kaldi's Coffee is a quality-oriented small-batch roaster with several cafes throughout Missouri. Visit or call 888-892-6333 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Complex, aromatically intense Guatemala.
