roaster: 1000 Faces Coffee Roasters; Athens, Ga
origin: Antigua, Guatemala
price: $16.00
tasting: 11/5/17

This coffee is roasted by 1000 Faces Coffee in Georgia. A small town roaster that is focusing on sourcing quality coffees. These red & yellow bourbon beans grow in the volcanic soils around the town of Antigua, in central Guatemala.

It’s incredible surprise as an espresso, so smooth and balanced, but with such unique flavor. Lots of plum flavor, with a slight spice finish. Not your traditional espresso, but the flavors are just so unique and go together so well.

Espresso Rating – 92pts.

These beans which are a light to medium roast, give a different taste as a pour over. They make for a much richer & bolder coffee than expected, tastes like a darker roast. The flavors are less pronounced as a coffee the plum is there, and some slight spice again on the finish. Overall this coffee ranks high on our list of the best coffees in the world for 2017.

Coffee Rating – 88pts.
