|Palencia, Guatemala Department, Guatemala.
Elegant floral aroma, with fruity hints of mixed berries and stone fruit, bright acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel and medium body. The floral tones carry into the cup with tart notes of Meyer lemon and strawberry rounding and sweetening to cherryish chocolate and nut. A mild sweet cocoa note lingers in the long finish softening a touch of astringency.
A prize winner in the 2008 Guatemala Cup of Excellence 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 dwarf selection of Bourbon.
