FEATURED LIBATION: Guatemala Acatenango – Finca San Diego Buena Vista and Guatemala Huehuetenango Finca Regalito
Guatemala is the 7th leading coffee-producing country of the world. Guatemalan Coffee has been divided geographically into 8 major coffee growing regions that produce unique flavor profiles. Probably the best know and most prestigious of those regions is Antigua, however there is great coffee that comes out of all the regions. Today, I am blending two of those regions together. Twenty-five percent of my blend for today’s coffee will come from Acatenango and 75% will come from Huehuetenango.

SPECIAL QUESTION: From Ian at Scorpion Cigar Reviews
Question: Does it matter that a drink alters your perception of cigar flavor? If you drink and smoke together as a normal routine, then would it not stand to reason that you should drink your beverage of choice while reviewing a cigar? If we want to get an opinion of a cigar for consideration of further purchase, should we drink nothing?

SPECIAL SEGMENT: Talk with the Boss Lady
