Guatemala by L’Or Espresso
This single-origin Guatemala from L’Or Espresso has a pleasant aroma with sugary sweetness, cinnamon, oaky notes and a hint of sweet cherries. The taste brings dark-roast bitterness and the dry acidity of apple cider.
On the nose, Guatemala by L’Or Espresso is sweet and dry, with a hint of darker roasting. Its pleasant notes of toffee and cinnamon sugar are enriched by dry tannins of oak wood and a touch of ripe cherries.
The taste of this single-origin espresso is somewhat unbalanced, with the bitterness of darker roast and the dry sourness of apple cider popping out. The finish is more mellow, offering notes of cocoa and red apples.
Extraction is without any problems and the crema is rich and tall.
