Blind Assessment:

Subtle, delicately sweet. Raw cashew, black peppercorn, lemon zest, dried peach, faint wisteria in aroma and cup. Mildly tart, juicy acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The round, resonant finish is redolent of peach and black peppercorn.

Notes:

Produced by Luis Pedro Zelaya at the Zelaya family farm in Antigua, Guatemala. Stumptown Coffee is a small-batch premium roasting company that wholesales its coffees as well as serves them in its cafes in five U.S. cities, including its latest expansion to New Orleans.

The Bottom Line: A delicate, pleasantly tart Guatemala cup with brisk hints of lemon zest throughout.
