|Review Date:||October 2007|
Quiet, shifting complexity in the aroma: orange, cedar, a hint of cinnamon. In the cup lucid, balanced, delicate: gentle acidity, silky mouthfeel, butter and continued orange notes; the cedar/cinnamon hints lean toward chocolate. Hints of flowers in the long, impressively flavor-saturated finish.
A prize winner in the 2007 Guatemala Cup of Excellence (www.cupofexcellence.org) competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed second out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 91.5 from an international jury. "Think Globally, Roast Locally" is the motto of Great Plains Coffee Roasting, a small-batch artisan roasting company serving the Sioux Falls community. Visit
Who Should Drink It
The perfectly poised roast, just on the cusp between medium and medium-dark, rounds and enriches the aromatics of this delicate coffee without suppressing them.
