Blind Assessment: A roundly straightforward cup dominated by sweet nut- and fruit-toned chocolate with a hint of aromatic wood. Soft acidity, medium body, mouthfeel that may strike some coffee drinkers as hearty and others as slightly rough. The orangy chocolate carries into the finish.
Notes: Processed at the Pastores mill in the central part of the famous Antigua Valley of Guatemala. Located in Maine, Coffee By Design is a retail and wholesale micro roaster with three coffeehouses in Portland & Freeport and a roastery that includes a coffee bar. Committed to offering outstanding small batch, hand-roasted coffees that are 100% traceable. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A medium-dark roast softens the fruit and develops the chocolate in this quiet, balanced Antigua.
