Preparation: French Press
Scores: Scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being excellent
Summary: These coffee beans are from Guatemala and are a medium roast. They are not only Fair Trade, but also Direct Trade and are organic, pesticide-free and a sustainable coffee. The aroma smells like sweet spicy chocolate, but the flavor has very strong tones of tangerine and citrus with a lasting tangy bite. The coffee is not bitter, but it is sour on the palate. It is acidy, but not overwhelmingly so. The flavor is unique and reminds me a little of Kona coffee. If you want a change of pace and want to try something that will definitely get your taste buds perking, than give this coffee a try. It came to my door from GoCoffeeGo within a couple days of roasting.
Overall score: 7
