Guatemala El Injerto
|Roaster Location:||Acton, Massachusetts|
|Coffee Origin:||Huehuetenango growing region, Guatemala.|
|Review Date:||March 2008|
Crisp but juicy in the aroma, with butter, honey, flower and marmalade-like orange notes. In the cup smoothly and gently acidy, delicate in mouthfeel, with a continued tart, marmalade-like, orangy sweetness complicated by cocoa, cedar, and continued flower and honey notes. Oranges and flowers carry into a cleanly sweet finish.
Huehuetenango is one of the most admired growing regions in Guatemala. This particular Huehuetenango is produced purely from trees of the traditional Bourbon variety of the arabica species.
