Organic Guatemala Highlands
|Roaster Location:||Americus, Georgia|
|Coffee Origin:||San Marcos growing region, southwestern Guatemala.|
|Review Date:||August 2001|
A rather simple but pleasingly balanced cup: bittersweet, with a low-toned shimmer of acidity. Prune or dried fruit notes in the cup and cocoa in the finish. Holds up very well as it cools.
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.

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