Maple. Orange. Graham Cracker.
This was a surprise both to me and my importer. This standard lot from the Huehuetenango region was a standout on the cupping table. It comes from 4 producers in the region and features a rich maple and graham cracker sweetness that makes it a straightforward, but very delicious coffee. These are the kinds of coffees I get excited about, a diamond in the rough. The coffee features a syrupy body and base notes of milk chocolate. A classic.
