Blind Assessment: The tartly sweet, lemony berry note associated with some of the world’s finest coffees is particularly dominant here, a complexly layered sensation that combines suggestions of ripe citrus, blackberry, fresh-cut fir, cocoa and bracing, bitterish flowers. Delicate but rich acidity; very smooth, silky mouthfeel. The finish is sweet-toned with a slightly drying mouthfeel.
Notes: A special auction lot from El Injerto, one of Guatemala’s most celebrated farms. This lot is comprised entirely of the Pacamara variety, a cross between the giant-beaned Maragogipe variety and Pacas, a selection of the heirloom Bourbon. The distinctive tart berry character associated with Bourbon-derived varieties of Arabica seems particularly foregrounded in this particular lot of the hybrid Pacamara. Willoughby's Coffee & Tea is a pioneer specialty coffee roaster established in the early 1980s that has gracefully and successfully moved with the times and now offers a menu of extremely refined small-lot, single-origin coffees.

Who Should Drink It: The combination of sweetness and austere beauty characteristic of the finest Kenyas displays in this exceptional coffee.
