Notes:

A rather simple but pleasingly balanced cup: bittersweet, with a low-toned shimmer of acidity. This coffee is produced by the indigenous small holders who make up the membership of Apecaform (Asociacion de Pequenos Caficultores Organicos Maya-Mames), a cooperative in an isolated region of the Guatemalan highlands near the border with Mexico. Certif

Who Should Drink It: Slow coffee drinkers. The cup actually improved as it cooled, growing sweeter and better balanced.
