Organic El Salvador by Allegro Coffee Review |

  • Organic El Salvador

Roast: Medium Review Date: July 2003
Origin: Santa Adelaida cooperative, El Salvador Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Attractive balance of chocolate-nuanced fruit, rich, low-toned but emphatic acidity, and a hint of roastiness. Ultimately, however, remains contained in its own quiet balance. Lacks the tonal range and dimension that would lift it from satisfying to remarkable.

Notes: Certified organically grown and shade-grown from trees of the heirloom bourbon variety by members of the Santa Adelaida cooperative. Allegro is one of the country's leading and most sophisticated sellers of premium single origin coffees, committed to giving equal value to intrinsic coffee character and to environmental and social issues in its coffee sourcing.

Who Should Drink It: Those who appreciate the sort of quietly complete coffee that produces an undercurrent of pleasure without calling attention to itself.


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.
