Kaldi's Coffee Roasting
|Roaster Location:||St. Louis, Missouri|
|Coffee Origin:||Antigua valley, central Guatemala|
|Review Date:||May 2004|
Blind Assessment: Simple aroma, bittersweet without much complication - a shimmer of fruit perhaps. In the cup turns from simple to gently classic: sweet, nutlike, temperate fruit notes reading as milk chocolate. Nominated by Deborah Ciangura of Wilmington, North Carolina.
Notes: Antigua, from the valley surrounding the colonial town of Guatemala Antigua, is Guatemala's most celebrated coffee origin. Kaldi's is a quality-oriented wholesale micro roaster. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer small pleasures to large excitements.
