|Roaster Location:||Philadelphia, Pennsylvania|
|Coffee Origin:||Western slopes of Volcan Fuego, south-central Guatemala, Central America|
|Review Date:||September 2003|
A delicate, exquisite coffee, sweetly and gently acidy, light-bodied but buoyant, with a subtle shimmer of floral-toned fruit - violets and apples on the morning I cupped it.
This coffee originates in an area close to the Antigua valley, but not officially sanctioned as an Antigua coffee. It also may be subject to somewhat different weather from the Antigua valley. Torreo is a quality oriented, mainly wholesale specialty roaster serving the larger Philadelphia area. Visit
Who Should Drink It
This naturally sweet, floral-and-fruit-toned Guatemala makes an attractive breakfast or afternoon coffee, particularly for those who take their cup black without sweeteners.
