Bucks County Coffee
Fair Trade Organic Guatemala
|Roaster Location:||Langhorne, Pennsylvania|
|Coffee Origin:||Huehuetenango growing region, north-central Guatemala|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||June 2003|
High-toned, sweet, light-footed and delicate, yet rich and deeply dimensioned. Lemon and red-wine notes in the aroma, in the cup red wine, cherry and a shimmer of flowers. Long, complex finish.
Purchased at A&P, ground in sealed 12-ounce foil bag with one-way valve; $10.65 per pound. Produced by indigenous Maya members of the ASOBAGRI cooperative. Certified organically grown and fair-traded, meaning farmers have been paid an economically sustainable price for this coffee based on internationally established price guidelines. Bucks County Coffee has managed to stay close to its micro-roasting roots throughout its expansion from a small roasting machine in a carriage house to one of the country's largest regional specialty coffee chains.
