Starbucks Coffee Tasting Seminar: Guatemala Casi Cielo and Caffe Verona


“Coffee”, just that word and I’m hooked! A “Love”-ly person e-mailed and reserved slots for me and my sister for a delightful coffee tasting seminar at Starbucks last weekend. They featured Guatemala Casi Cielo and Caffe Verona plus the company’s commitment to ethically source coffee through Shared Planet.


*Guatemala Casi Cielo - smell: floral, cocoa; taste: lemon acidity, smooth body, dark cocoa finish; mouth feel comes from the cocoa-powder texture that coats the tongue characteristic of the Antigua Region; an elegant coffee which complements sweet desserts, herbs and cheeses.

*Cafe Verona - roasty, sweet; low acidity, full body; a blend of coffees from four farms in the Antigua Region; complex and a multi-region blend (Latin America and Asia/Pacific with Italian Roast; a post-roast blendto bring out all the four coffee flavours.


*Shared Planet - (2008) is focused on three key ideas: Ethical Sourcing, Environmental Stewardship and Community Involvement; the company’s way to share their Global Responsibility efforts with their customers.
