Blind Assessment:

Mildly tangy aromatic notes, with soft hints of nuts and chocolate. A bright acidity is softened and rounded by faint suggestions of fruit. The balance continues in the cup with tart lime tones standing out in front, fading to a pleasant nuttiness. Hints of chocolate, spice and aromatic wood linger in the long, dry finish.


From the valley surrounding the colonial town of Guatemala Antigua, Antigua is Guatemala’s most celebrated coffee origin.
