Blind Assessment: Crisp, sweetly nut-toned. Hazelnut butter, baker’s chocolate, cherry, cedar, freesia-like flowers in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned in structure with brisk acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. The sweet finish consolidates to an inviting nutty chocolate in the short and spice-toned florals in the long.
Notes: Produced on Finca Quejina by the Nicolas Ramirez family from trees of the Bourbon, Caturra and Pache varieties of Arabica. This is a wet-processed or “washed” coffee, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying.

The Bottom Line: A friendly, straightforward, pleasing Guatemala cup.
