Roast: NA Review Date: September 1997
Origin: El Salvador Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Few complaints here, but not much enthusiasm either. At least no one called this coffee ordinary or boring. "Excellent coffee," said one, "although repeated cuppings left me with a feeling of 'something lacking.'" "Doesn't go anywhere," I observed. However, one of the cuppers felt this coffee came "back with a second level of depth; a good, full cup." Perhaps the rest of us weren't patient enough.

Notes: Excellent coffee, charming but limited character. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. El Borbollon is grown on a family-owned estate.

Who Should Drink It: Charm, but not enough character to impress.


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.
