Guatemalan Antigua, 1999
|Roaster Location:||Portland, Oregon|
|Review Date:||July 1999|
Blind Assessment: A gently bright coffee, sweet and alive with spice and smoke in the aroma and floral innuendo in the cup. The floral tones linger in the aftertaste. Just enough resonance and depth to maintain authority.
Notes: Elegant rather than forceful, this is a superb but somewhat atypical Antigua. Boyd is a large, quality-oriented wholesale roaster founded in 1900.
Who Should Drink It: Elegant rather than forceful, this is a superb but somewhat atypical Antigua. Should do splendidly in a drip preparation for mornings and afternoons.
