Caffe Pronto Coffee Roastery
Guatemala El Socorro Y Anexos Cup of Excellence
|Roaster Location:||Annapolis, Maryland|
|Coffee Origin:||Palencia, Guatemala Department, Guatemala.|
|Review Date:||December 2008|
Blind Assessment: Elegantly delicate, lightly floral aroma, with tartly-sweet acidity and medium body. The delicacy carries into the cup with notes of sweet citrus rounding and softening toward candied-nut. Very clean finish, with a slight astringent note in the long.
Notes: A prize winner in the 2008 Guatemala Cup of Excellence (www.cupofexcellence.org) competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed fourth out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 89.60 from an international jury. This coffee is comprised of the Maracaturra variety of Arabica, a cross between the giant-beaned Maragogipe and Caturra, a selection of the prestigious Bourbon variety. Caffe Pronto is a cafe-roastery and an espresso bar with a mission that emphasizes quality and service. Visit www.caffepronto.com or call 888-697-7667 for more information.
Who Should Drink It : Those who enjoy lively elegance in a very light-roasted prize-winning coffee.
