Notes:

Rich, balanced, deeply dimensioned, sweet and mouthfilling at the front end, a touch bitter toward the finish. Meadowy hints of flowers waft in the sweetness. Produced by a famous cooperative, “La Voz qui Clama en el Desierto” (The Voice that Cries in the Wilderness), this coffee is grown by hundreds of indigenous farmers on tiny plots on the volcanic slopes above Lake Atitlan. Decaffeinated by the solvent-free process.

Who Should Drink It: An excellent Fair-Trade decaffeinated coffee; just bright enough for classic coffee drinkers but full and rich enough to invigorate milk.
