|Roaster Location:||Hanover Park, Illinois|
|Coffee Origin:||Antigua Valley, Guatemala|
|Review Date:||May 2003|
Blind Assessment: Medium bodied but delicate, soft, exquisitely balanced, giddy with sweet fruit tones that may suggest cherry but ultimately express the purity and elegance of a perfectly processed coffee. The finish is sweet, long, and gently rich.
Notes: Antigua, grown in the valley surrounding the picturesque colonial town Guatemala Antigua, is Guatemala's most celebrated coffee. Coffeemaria is a boutique micro-roaster that, via its website, sells coffee roasted to order and same-day shipped. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Lovers of clarity and simplicity in all things.
