  • El Salvador San Isidro

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: November 2008
Origin: Usulutan Department, El Salvador. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Sweet but simple, rather subdued aroma: dark chocolate, butter, nut. In the cup roast-softened acidity, medium body and lightly syrupy mouthfeel, butter, cocoa and nut notes with a hint of flowers. Stupendous finish: long, rich, deep, with a surprising intensification of the floral note only hinted at in the cup.

Notes: Owned by Ana Sylvia Schonenberg, San Isidro has been planted with the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica since its inception in 1960. A prize winner in the 2008 El Salvador Cup of Excellence (www.cupofexcellence.org) competition as a green (unroasted) coffee. Muggswigz is a quality minded small-batch roaster and coffeehouse based in Canton, Ohio that describes itself as "Roastery, Brewery, Swiggery."

Who Should Drink It: The darkish roast rounds and deepens the cup without introducing astringency.
