Industrial Joe Coffee
Guatemalan Plantation Direct
|Roaster Location:||Bend, Oregon|
|Coffee Origin:||Huehuetenango growing region, Guatemala.|
|Review Date:||October 2008|
Blind Assessment: Straightforward crisp, citrusy and floral aroma, with a touch of winy brightness. The flavor is round and sweet with soft fruit notes and hints of chocolate. A lightly nutty quality persists into the sweet finish.
Notes: Available at $10.00 per one-pound valve bag, with discounts for larger quantities, at the roaster's website. Grown at Finca Vista Hermosa in Huehuetenango, a growing region that averages some of the highest growing altitudes in Guatemala and produces coffees that many insiders prefer to the better-known coffees of the Antigua region. Industrial Joe is a Bend, Oregon based internet coffee retailer. Visit
