Blind Assessment: Bright, deeply chocolaty. Dark chocolate, grapefruit zest, plum, hazelnut, thyme in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with juicy acidity; full, satiny mouthfeel. Chocolaty, nut-toned finish with undertones of fresh-cut thyme.
Notes: Produced at Beneficio La Esperanza, from trees of the Bourbon variety of Arabica, and processed by the washed method. El Gran Cafe is a coffee shop located in the heart of Antigua, Guatemala whose mission is to roast and serve organic-certified coffees produced at its own Finca La Esperanza and Finca El Pintado just outside of town. Featured in El Gran Cafe’s lineup are also coffees from friends and neighbors in the region, along with award-winning and exceptional coffees from other regions of Guatemala.

The Bottom Line: A cocoa-toned, citrusy, sweetly herbaceous washed Guatemala cup.
