Blind Assessment: Sweetly tart, high-toned. Pie cherry, baking chocolate, cane sugar, almond, a hint of narcissus in aroma and cup. Tart-leaning structure with juicy acidity; delicately satiny mouthfeel. The clean, refreshing finish is centered around tart fruit notes.
Notes: Produced by Renardo Ovalle Vides of Finca Don Angel, from trees of the Bourbon, Caturra and San Ramon varieties of Arabica, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried).

The Bottom Line: A bright, juicy Guatemala cup with tart fruit, sweet nut, and spicy flowers.
