Coffee Review - El Salvador Nombre de Dios by Kuma Coffee
  • Kuma Coffee

    Seattle, Washington
  • El Salvador Nombre de Dios

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: November 2011
Origin: Chalatenango, El Salvador Price: $14.00/12 ounces

Blind Assessment: Fresh, naturally sweet, dominated by floral and honey notes anchored by a complicating hint of fresh-cut fir. The acidity is giddily and sweetly bright; the mouthfeel lively and somewhere between silky and creamy in texture. Long, resonant finish.

Notes: The Nombre de Dios farm is located in northern El Salvador, close to the border of Honduras and Guatemala, in the highlands of Alotepec-Metapán Mountain Range. This offering was produced entirely from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. Kuma Coffee is a small Seattle, Washington based roaster that believes that coffee fosters relationships.

Who Should Drink It: Those who have learned to enjoy lighter-roasted coffees that bring the freshness of the coffee flower and fruit to the 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.
