Blind Assessment: Sweetly savory, vibrant, deep. Meyer lemon zest, dark chocolate, tamarind, sandalwood, aromatic orchid in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with bright, juicy acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. Flavor-saturated-finish leads with notes of tamarind and lemon zest, rounding to deep, dark chocolate notes in the long.
Notes: This coffee tied for the second-highest rating in a cupping of washed-process coffees from Central America and Mexico for Coffee Review’s September 2020 report. Produced by Alejandro and Fredy Morales from trees of the Bourbon and Typica varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method. Corvus Coffee Roasters is based in Denver, Colorado and specializes in rare and exclusive coffees from some of the finest growers in the world. Corvus particularly focuses on processing methods and selective harvesting, which result in small, seasonal micro-lots of uniquely sweet, vibrant, and clean flavor profiles.

The Bottom Line: Deeply chocolaty Guatemala cup with distinct tamarind and aromatic orchid notes leaning toward the tropical.
