Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: December 2004
Origin: El Salvador Price: NA

Blind Assessment: In the aroma rather subdued but complex with chocolate, cherry and a bracing whiff of cedar. The cup is delicate when hot, with a lovely, lyric balance of sweetness and a gentle shimmer of acidity complicated by slightly tart, cherryish chocolate notes. As the cup cools the profile simplifies and flattens, however. I had this coffee rated 90 until it cooled.
