City Bean Coffee
Guatemala La Flor del Cafe
|Roaster Location:||West Hollywood, California|
|Review Date:||October 1998|
Blind Assessment: The acidity is light and bright with a shimmer of fruit. At the center of the profile a slight pungency is nuanced by dry wine tones. Not much range, but solid dimension and outstanding balance.
Notes: An excellent Latin-American style coffee. The acidity is light and bright with a shimmer of fruit. Slight pungency nuanced by dry wine tones. Limited range, but solid dimension and outstanding balance. City Bean is an award-winning, three-outlet boutique roaster headquartered in West Hollywood, California.
Who Should Drink It: The best-seller factor:An excellent Latin-American style coffee. A bit light in the cup compared with some Antiguas, but balanced, lively and complete. Is it the quality alone, or the relative easiness of the profile that attracts City Bean's customers?
