Roast: NA Review Date: July 2003
Origin: Santa Ana growing region, El Salvador Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Aroma is superbly rich, sweet and deep with chocolate notes. In the cup the powerful but low-key acidity is enveloped in richness. Ultimately more about solid balance and satisfying structure than nuance, though an apricot-toned chocolate makes itself felt toward the finish.

Notes: This coffee, grown on Bosque Lya farm and roasted and shipped from El Salvador, was recommended by a reader who apparently visited Sweet's El Palacio de los Postres (Sweet's Palace of Desserts) in San Salvador and found the coffee particularly memorable. From the United States, call 011-503-298-9600 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A fine example of the round, richly lively cup often associated with El Salvador.


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.
