Blind Assessment: Deeply chocolaty, vibrantly high-toned. Dark chocolate, nectarine, almond butter, freesia-like flowers, lemon thyme in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with bright, juicy acidity; plush, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The resonantly chocolaty finish is supported by notes of almond butter and hints of freesia.
Notes: Produced by Luis Pedro Zelaya Zamora from trees of the Bourbon and Caturra varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method. Conscious Cup Coffee Roasters is an independent and family-owned and -operated cafe and coffee roaster specializing in socially and environmentally sustainable coffees.

The Bottom Line: A paradoxically deep (chocolaty) and bright (stone fruit-toned) Guatemala cup that achieves a complex yet harmonious balance. Richly floral as well.
