Blind Assessment: Very sweet, ripe lemon, rich cocoa, backgrounded lush flowers in aroma and cup. Vivacious acidity and a mouthfeel almost effervescent in its buoyancy and liveliness. Sweet, deep, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Xeucalvitz is one of four coffee producing communities that form an association called Ixil A’achimbal. The coffee is fermented without water for around twenty hours in wooden boxes covered with banana leaves, washed, and sun-dried on tables and tarps, a local variation on orthodox wet-processing, and one that seems to have a complex and positive impact on cup character. Coava is a Portland based coffee roaster that aims to provide quality coffee and the knowledge needed to properly brew that coffee.
