|Review Date:||July 1997|
For most the acidity was the main act here. Some found it pleasantly bright ("nice, winy and sharp," according to one); others complained it was too sharp, throwing off the balance of the coffee, and perhaps astringent in the aftertaste. Supporting virtue: Most found this coffee substantial in body. "An excellent example of a Guatemala," according to one. But judging from the scores, the majority may harbor reservations.
Not overly refined, but undoubtedly powerful, with a substantial body. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee.
