Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet, richly nut-toned. Hazelnut butter, magnolia-like flowers, crisp pear, cedar, agave syrup in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with gentle, round acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to deep nut and rich aromatic wood.
Notes: Produced by Luis Pedro Zelaya at La Folie Farm of the Bourbon and Caturra varieties of Arabica. Processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Big Shoulders Coffee is a Chicago artisan roaster that emphasizes a fresh-roasted, no-nonsense approach to fine coffee. Visit www.bigshoulderscoffee.com or call 312-846-1439 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A friendly, accessible Guatemala cup that leads with pleasing nut tones supported by spice-toned fruit. Gentle though expressive acidity.
