Balance: Acidity is the brightness that coffee offers. Some palates register this as sour or tangy. Some delight in its fruity complexities.
Alternatively, boldness can taste rich and bittersweet like dark chocolate. Some palates register this as heavy or smoky. Some delight in its rich, spicy caramelized sugars.
Balanced coffees will have a nice mixture of both attributes so that one does not overpower the other.
Antigua is one of seven separate coffee regions on the volcanic slopes in Guatemala.
