PT's Coffee Roasting Co.
|Roaster Location:||Topeka, Kansas|
|Review Date:||April 2000|
Blind Assessment: A classic Guatemala in the lighter, softer mode: floral, gently acidy, high-toned but deeply dimensioned. Flowers permeate even the slight bitterness of the roast. A coffee as pure, sweet-toned and brightly complex as a Guatemalan weaving.
Notes: Produced by a cooperative of peasant growers in the mountains above Lake Atitlan and marketed under the name El Quiche. Fair Traded and certified organically grown. PT 's coffee is a locally award-winning, quality-oriented small-batch roaster whose motto is "Without the love, it's just coffee."
Who Should Drink It: Those with a taste for things gentle, delicate, and sweet without sentiment. Probably best brewed with paper filters to preserve the elegance and refined high notes.
