Sweetly tart, crisply juicy. Cedar, orange, blackberry, a hint of roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Bright but sweet acidity. Syrupy mouthfeel. Rich, deep, gently drying finish.
This is a special auction lot produced by El Injerto, one of Guatemala’s most celebrated coffee farms, from the admired Pacamara variety of Arabica. Noble Age is El Injerto’s description for a coffee produced only from very ripe, dark red, almost purple fruit, when sugar content is at or close to its maximum. CaféTaster is an aficionado nano-roaster of the style increasingly characteristic of East Asia countries like Taiwan and Korea, roasting very high-end coffees in very small volumes for a tiny clientele of passionate coffee enthusiasts, in the process selling coffee education as much as coffee itself.

Who Should Drink It
Striking in the juxtaposition of sweetness and the dry authority of its complex fruit notes. Both bracing and seductive.
