Blind Assessment: Splendid aroma: sweet, smoky/spicy, cantaloupe notes. In the cup brightly acidy, the cantaloupe notes turning tart and tamarind-toned.
Notes: Huehuetenango, a mountainous, rugged growing region near the Mexican border with a relatively dry climate, is a favorite Guatemala growing region among coffee insiders, who value its typically sweet, delicate, fruit-toned cup. Over the past three decades Neighbors Coffee has evolved from office coffee service to major regional wholesale specialty roaster offering an impressive range of single-origin and blended coffees.

Who Should Drink It: A straightforward, relatively light-roasted breakfast cup in the traditional American style with a teasing hint of deep-toned, carnal fruit.
