Blind Assessment: Layers of sweet hazelnut, aromatic wood and caramel in both aroma and cup. As the cup cools, orangy fruit and floral notes become more pronounced. Rich acidity, full body. A slight walnut-like astringency complicates the generally sweet, floral-toned finish.
Notes: Since its inception in August of 2007, Cafe P11 has focused on its signature line of Guatemalan coffees. Each is a carefully designed blend of high-grown Guatemala coffees that changes by year. The coffee is roasted in Guatemala and handsomely packaged in small, elegantly designed, reusable steel cans.

Who Should Drink It: Patience is rewarded by increased complexity as the cup cools.
