Blind Assessment:

Soft, crisp, nut-toned. Hazelnut, honeysuckle, plum, a hint of fresh-cut cedar in aroma and cup. Round, quietly resonant acidity; plush, cushiony mouthfeel. The nut note turns chocolaty in a crisply sweet, balanced finish.

Notes:

From trees of the sturdy, respected Caturra variety of Arabica. Huehuetenango is a particularly admired Guatemala growing region. Dragonfly Coffee is a Boulder, Colorado-based micro-roaster that produces high-quality coffees and supports worthy causes.

Who Should Drink It: Those who value a fine, classic juxtaposition of a plummy, plump juiciness and crisp nut and cedar.
