Caffe Pronto Coffee Roastery
Guatemala El Socorro Y Anexos Cup of Excellence
|Palencia, Guatemala Department, Guatemala.
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.
