|Review Date:||July 1997|
Judging by the scores, I was in the minority here. I loved this Antigua for its dimension and completeness -- the way it resonated on the palate and developed, stretching into the distance behind the initial impression. Some cuppers agreed: "nice complexity ... clean, lingering aftertaste"; "full [bodied], great structure." But others wanted more out front: "all the right characteristics, but very [much] in the distance, blurry." Four detected chocolate notes; only one found a mild off note.
An Antigua with structure and dimension, with chocolate notes. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee.
Who Should Drink It
A coffee for patient palates. Or, maybe, for those in quest of the legendary Guatemala chocolate overtones.
