Mexico Chiapas Altura
|Roaster Location:||Hanover Park, Illinois|
|Review Date:||December 2001|
The aroma is rich, deeply dimensioned, shot through with bracing grapefruit tones; the body smooth and full. The richly expressed grapefruit tones excite when the cup is hot, but turn a touch bitterish and sharp as it cools, particularly in the finish.
A shade-grown coffee from an association of small producers. Coffeemaria is a boutique micro-roaster that, via its website, sells coffee roasted to order and same-day shipped.
Who Should Drink It
An interesting breakfast cup: rich and smooth but crisp with citrus notes. Drink it hot, before the bitterness sets in.
