Z&Z Fine Coffees
El Durazno “The Peach” Antigua
|Coffee Origin:||Antigua Valley, Guatemala.|
|Est. Price:||GTQ 100/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||September 2013|
Blind Assessment: Delicately chocolaty with an engaging layered complexity. Nut-toned chocolate, cinnamon, plum, a savory hint of thyme in aroma and cup. Crisp, perfectly balanced acidity; silky mouthfeel. Sweet but gently drying, straightforward finish.
Notes: Produced on the San Sebastian farm in the celebrated Antigua Valley growing region, largely from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. Z&Z Fine Coffees is an independent coffee retailer. Their coffees are roasted with care by Rojocerezo Coffee, a roaster based in Guatemala. Visit
Who Should Drink It: An impressive rendition of the delicate chocolate and spice and sweetly balanced acidity for which Antiguas are famous.
