Green Mountain Coffee
Guatemalan Finca Dos Marias
|San Marcos growing region, southwestern Guatemala
The cup is dominated by a simple, rich acidity. The acidy sensation is rather sharp and overbearing when the cup is hot, though it rounds and sweetens as the cup cools, revealing wine-toned fruit and a resonance that could only be guessed at when the cup was hot.
Finca Dos Marias is an old, impeccably run family-owned farm with impressive social and environmental credentials, including schools and clinics for workers and a large quetzal preserve. It is situated in the high, wet San Marcos region, near the border with Chiapas, Mexico. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.

Who Should Drink It
Slow drinkers. This dry, powerfully acidy coffee is a purist's cup, challenging and bracing.
