Blind Assessment: Spicy and nutty with floral undertones. Cedar, turbinado sugar, hazelnut, myrrh, gardenia in aroma and cup. Round, low-toned acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Gently drying, cedar-toned finish.
Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade Certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a “fair” or economically sustainable price. Huehuetenango is a particularly admired Guatemala growing region. This coffee was produced by CODECH Women Producers, 100% women-owned or -managed farms in the municipality of Concepcion Huista. Half of the proceeds from the sale of this coffee will go to support a women’s health workshop.

Who Should Drink It: The quietly adventurous. Subtly original in aroma and flavor: crisply and sweetly pungent, incense-like.
