Topic: Guatemala (4 msgs / 89 lines)
1) From: Scott Marquardt
I'm new to home roasting, and new to considering the variety of beans
available. The 8-pack samples have been a big help. My favorite thus
far has been Guatemala Huehuetenango Tres Maria, though that appears
to be gone. But I note the Guatemala Antigua Peaberry "Especial". Is
there any reason I wouldn't like that for the same reasons?
Great stuff.

 Scott- First, I do not know about you, but I haven't met a (green)
coffee yet that I ultimately dislike. Surprisingly, I happened to see
some Vietnamese green on the 'Bay, and I thought of the Christmas eve
of 1968, when I flew into Cam Ranh Bay and Tuy Hoa from Clark in the
Philippines with a "Waay Heavy" radio shelter. Everyone but I knew
why-! San Miguel, and lots of it.
But not a drop of coffee, because that would have rekindled memories
of the dreckige C-Rats Scheisse. Not a good thing on 24 Dec 68 when
the general contractor was just building Tuy Hoa Air Base. Oh, the
stories- but I couldn't pass up 5 pounds of "RVN green."
Glad I didn't, 'cause some birdie had told me it would be soo
tantalizing just before the end of First, and it was indeed. Egad-
lots of memories.
Your palate will tell you whether a particular coffee is good or not.
You can vary the roast or brewing technique to bring out the best of
any beans you have

I would avoid guatemala city basically, and head straight to Antigua 
in arrival. It's almost impossible to spend too much time in Antigua. 
A very nice old style place that is very reasonable price is Hotel 
Aurora. Very central but quiet, especially if you ask for a room away 
from the street (simply because the cobblestone streets are noisy 
under the car tires... see it on trip advisor, etc.
