|Roaster Location:||Tucson, Arizona|
|Coffee Origin:||Lake Atitlan basin, south central Guatemala.|
|Review Date:||April 2000|
Blind Assessment: A hint of ferment pleasantly hovers between chocolate and cherry-toned, overripe fruit. The darkish roast turns the sweet fruit dryly rich.
Notes: A hint of ferment pleasantly hovers between roast-induced chocolate and cherry-toned, overripe fruit. La Voz que Clama en el Desierto, The Voice that Calls in the Wilderness, is the poetic name of this coffee from a cooperative in the mountains above Lake Atitlan. It is a triple certified coffee, meaning it is organically grown, Eco-OK (shade-grown and sustainable.
Who Should Drink It: This is not a purist 's coffee, but the rich, sweet ferment tones should delight those genial palates that enjoy richly ambiguous desserts. Should do splendidly in a French press.
