Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned, deep, richly balanced. Ripe orange and distinct almond notes with a backgrounded sweet cocoa in aroma and cup. Delicately bright, fruit-toned acidity; lightish but very silky mouthfeel. Flavor-saturated short finish; dries out a bit in the long.
Notes: La Joya is a small, steep, high-altitude farm located on the slopes of Acatenango Volcano, facing Antigua. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A fine, balanced, gently crisp cup of the style associated with the best Guatemalas.
