|Roaster Location:||Seattle, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Central Guatemala|
|Review Date:||February 2004|
Blind Assessment: Quietly complex aroma: sweet, discreetly roasty, with suggestions of leather, chocolate, apricot, perhaps pear. In the cup gentle, low-key, richly fruity with a lush apricot that flirts with chocolate.
Notes: One of a series of Starbucks' "Commitment to Origins" coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who take pleasure in the way a tactful dark roast turns a sweetly fruity coffee toward chocolate.
