Nuevo Cantinil - Guatemala
SWEET & SMOOTH
Chocolate Sundae - Orange Zest - Black Berry
Nuevo Cantinil is full of sweetness with notes of chocolate-covered hazelnuts and blackberries that carry into a lingering orange zest aftertaste. It is the an amazingly refined example of the classic Huehuetenango profile. While this coffee is representative of the style, it stands out from the pack due to it having such a clean, sweet cup with excellent clarity of flavors.
This coffee comes from a cooperative of farmers centered in the village of Nuevo Cantinil outside the city of Tajumuco. This city is 10 miles southwest of the Mexico boarder in Guatemala's famed Huehuetenango region. The care they provide for their coffee is evident in this cup we see ourselves returning to over and over agin.
