Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet, nut-toned. Almond brittle, pie cherry, magnolia, baking chocolate, mesquite in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with brisk acidity; very syrupy mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of baking chocolate, pie cherry and mesquite.
Notes: Produced by Andres Fahsen of Finca Patzibar entirely of the Catuai variety of Arabica, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). 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 quietly confident, sweetly nut-toned Guatemala cup with a particularly appealing, viscous mouthfeel.
