Reading Coffee Roasters
|Roaster Location:||Birdsboro, Pennsylvania|
|Coffee Origin:||Antigua valley, central Guatemala|
|Review Date:||June 2006|
Simple but classically appealing coffee. High-toned, sweetly spicy aroma with tight-knit suggestions of flowers, chocolate and sweet tomato that amplify in the richly acidy cup. The finish stays on the roundly hearty side of astringent.
Antigua, from the valley surrounding the colonial town of Guatemala Antigua, is Guatemala's most celebrated coffee origin. Reading Coffee Roasters specializes in "gourmet coffees medium roasted the old fashioned European way - Never bitter or burnt!" according to its website. Visit
