El Salvador 100% Bourbon by Coffee Klatch Review | CoffeeReview.com
Roast: Light Review Date: October 2008
Origin: El Salvador. Price: $9.95/16oz

Blind Assessment: A simple but poised and elegant coffee. Crisp nut notes with a lean toward chocolate dominate the aroma. In the cup round, sweet acidity, medium body with a lightly syrupy mouthfeel, and continued nut notes with a ripe cherryish fruit and perhaps a drying hint of lemon. Simple, rich, long finish.

Notes: Available in a one-pound valve bag at $9.95. Bourbon is a prestigious, heirloom variety of Coffea Arabica; El Salvador is fortunate to have considerably more plantings of Bourbon than most other Central American coffee producers. Coffee Klatch is an award-winning small-batch roasting company in the Los Angeles area whose resident barista and trainer, Heather Perry, won both the 2003 and 2007 United States Barista Championships brewing Coffee Klatch espresso blends.
