|Roaster Location:||Topeka, Kansas|
|Coffee Origin:||Santa Rosa Department, Guatemala.|
|Review Date:||September 2008|
Blind Assessment: Simple, lush aroma with nut and molasses notes. In the cup syrupy mouthfeel, smooth acidity, powerful sweetness. The molasses notes round richly toward a floral-toned honey, balanced by a crisp, dry walnut. Finishes richly with a continued dry, edge-of-astringent walnut note.
Notes: This coffee is Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. A specially prepared, all-sun-dried lot from Finca Santa Isabel. Tactfully roasted at PT's Coffee, where the motto is "without the love, it's just coffee."

Who Should Drink It: Honeyish and floral sweet yet authoritatively dry, should please those who like beverages that combine sweetness and bite.
