Blind Assessment:

Bittersweet, rich-toned. Date, grapefruit zest, hazelnut, cedar, freesia-like flowers in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with brisk acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is framed by aromatic wood notes (cedar) with date and hazelnut undertones and a throughline of grapefruit zest.

Notes:

Produced at Los Santos Farm entirely from trees of the admired Bourbon variety of Arabica and processed by the washed method. Temple Coffee is a quality-focused retail and wholesale specialty roaster active in Sacramento, California since 2005.

The Bottom Line: A richly bittersweet Guatemala cup punctuated by pretty notes of citrus zest throughout.
