This is a water process decaf that was sent directly to the decaffeination plant in Mexico from the highlands of Huehuetenango department. It's not an estate lot, but a mix of farms. Yet it retains typical Huehue character, and tastes like a good, non-decaf Huehue lot. The dry fragrance has apple ester notes and hazelnut. Sometimes this fruitiness is the result of the decaf process, and shouldn't be there in the aromatics, but in this case it is from the coffee: it comes through in the wet aromatics too. In addition, the aroma is very sweet, and in the cup flavors the theme is continued ... classic cup character tinted with fruit and nut accents. I get a slight raspberry note in the City+ roast, and overall the character is bright, lively and high-toned. The aftertaste is brief, clean and pleasant, while the body is,as with most nice Guatemala coffees, light-to-medium. Overall, this cup echoes perfectly it's non-decaf counterpart, and has good Huehuetenango origin character.
