Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Nuanced, floral-toned, richly sweet. Wisteria, chocolate fudge, almond brittle, cedar, black cherry in aroma and small cup. Lightly syrupy, crisp mouthfeel; gently drying, cocoa-and wood-framed finish. Notes of wisteria are foregrounded in three parts milk, supported by chocolate fudge and almond.


Produced at Guayabales farm by Pedro Villatoro Castillo from trees of the Bourbon and Caturra varieties of Arabica and processed by the wet or washed method.

The Bottom Line: A single-origin espresso from Guatemala pleasingly floral-prominent in both the straight shot and with milk. Rich, crisp, high-toned.
