Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned fruit in aroma and cup, complemented by complex layers of citrus, butterscotch and pungent aromatic wood. Gently bright acidity, silky mouthfeel. Simplifies in the finish, though hints of nut and chocolate persist.
Notes: Produced in the spectacular mountain basin surrounding Guatemala's Lake Atitlan by small-holding producers from trees of the Bourbon, Caturra and Typica varieties. Founded in 1994, Kaldi's Coffee is a quality-oriented small-batch roaster with several cafes throughout Missouri. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Complex, aromatically intense Guatemala.
