Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: November 2008
Origin: Santa Ana Department, El Salvador. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A delicately understated, lyric coffee sensitively roasted. Round, nut-toned aroma, with hints of sweet fruit and cinnamon. Tart yet well balanced acidity, medium body, flavors of roasted nuts, black cherry and chocolate. Impressive finish: bittersweet cocoa and caramel linger.

Notes: A prize winner in the 2008 El Salvador Cup of Excellence (www.cupofexcellence.org) competition as a green (unroasted) coffee. Composed entirely of coffee from the Bourbon variety. 49th Parallel is a distinguished small-batch roasting company located in the Vancouver, Canada area that specializes in high-end single-origin and blended coffees, many sourced directly from origin.

Who Should Drink It: A gently bright but suave breakfast cup.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
