Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet, quietly resonant. Wisteria, apricot, pistachio, molasses, oak in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart, savory-edged structure with round acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The persistent finish consolidates to notes of molasses and pistachio.
Notes: Produced at Finca El Pintado from trees of the Bourbon and Geisha varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method. Certified USDA Organic. 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 complex, rich-toned Guatemala cup with pretty floral and stone fruit notes supported by sweet, pistachio-like nut tones.
