La Cascade Estate Guatemalan Coban coffee—so named for the 300 foot waterfall that highlights the farm owned by Horst Spitzke in San Cristobal Verapaz—is a blend of Bourbon and Caturra varietals beans. Grown between 1,200 and 1,500 meters, it's considered a "high-grown" coffee, which are known for their intense, concentrated flavors.
As Allen Liebowitz, co-partner of Zingerman's Coffee Company says: "it has everything you want in a Guatemalan coffee. Sweet floral aromas, flavors of citrus and wonderfully bright acidity."
In short a great brew for summer.
Body: full, bright.
Tasting Notes: delicate, smooth, slightly fruity with a long finish that hints at fuzzy, soft cocoa.
Facts: Roasted fresh by Zingerman’s Coffee Company. Shipped whole bean.
