White Horse Coffee & Tea
|Roaster Location:||Sutherlin, Oregon|
|Coffee Origin:||Huehuetenango growing region, western Guatemala|
|Review Date:||September 2003|
The good news is this moderately dark roast displays a rich depth of sensation and spicy, smoky notes in the nose. The bad news: The roast also imposes a rather gritty, astringent finish.
Huehuetenango, a mountainous, rugged growing region near the Mexican border with a relatively dry climate, is a favorite Guatemala growing region among coffee insiders, who value its typically sweet, delicate, fruit-toned cup. White Horse Coffee & Tea is a small, quality-oriented roaster operated by fine artist Kristin Lusk and her husband Leo. Visit
Who Should Drink It
The full body and deep dimension makes this coffee a good choice for those French-pressers who enjoy a heavily textured cup. Should persevere nicely through milk and sweetener.
