Recommended Roast Level
This coffee won #8 at the Cup of Excellence competition and is the highest-rated coffee to come to the US this year. That means it must be special and it does not disappoint.
It is a light and floral washed Gesha. But don't let the Gesha variety lull you into thinking it is just floral. The trademark Guatemalan chocolate comes through perfectly. The acidity brings to mind hints of a cranberry reduction just in time for a Thanksgiving weekend launch. Did I mention how clean this coffee is? You don't earn an 88.93 from an international panel of judges without being a crazy clean cup! We participated in a buying group for this coffee and nabbed 2 bags.
