Coffee Review - Flor Del Sol by PT's Coffee
Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: October 2012
Origin: Western El Salvador Price: $10.00/8 ounces

Blind Assessment: Pungent and perfumy. Orange zest, apricot, lush honeysuckle, fir, a hint of cocoa nib in aroma and cup. Roundly tart acidity; light, rather creamy-textured mouthfeel. Sweetly tart in the finish: hints of the orange and cocoa nib.

Notes: This coffee was entirely produced from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. PT’s Coffee donates one dollar per eight-ounce purchase to the Prodigy Youth Soccer Association of Topeka in honor of PT’s employee and soccer enthusiast Jonathan Kaspar, who lost his life in an automobile accident in 2010. The Flor Del Sol tattoo he wore on his arm inspired the name of this single-origin blend. Jose Antonio Salaverria of Las Ranas Estate, a direct trade partner of PT’s, donated the green coffee for this project. Roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit or call 888-678-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy exhilarating aromatics, a briskly tart structure and grassroots soccer.
