Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet-tart, chocolate-toned. Dark chocolate, pomegranate, praline, magnolia, a hint of marjoram in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with brisk acidity; very full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to dark chocolate with undertones of praline and magnolia.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers of Asociación Tinamit from a field blend of traditional varieties grown in the region, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). El Gran Cafe is a coffee shop located in the heart of Antigua, Guatemala whose mission is to roast and serve organic-certified coffees produced at its own Finca La Esperanza and Finca El Pintado just outside of town. Featured in El Gran Cafe’s lineup are also coffees from friends and neighbors in the region, along with award-winning and exceptional coffees from other regions of Guatemala.

The Bottom Line: A richly chocolaty Guatemala cup with a compelling floral throughline supported by sweet herb notes.
