Blind Assessment: Deep-toned, complex. Bing cherry, cocoa nib, butterscotch, rhododendron, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with juicy, bright acidity; very smooth, syrupy mouthfeel. Resonant, nuanced, long finish.
Notes: Produced by Juan Diego of Finca El Socorro entirely of the big-beaned Maracaturra variety of Arabica, and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried).

The Bottom Line: A plush, richly sweet, multi-layered Guatemala Maracaturra offering both depth and levity.
