  • Cup of Excellence El Salvador Brasil

Roast: Medium Review Date: November 2004
Origin: El Salvador Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Sweet, low-toned, resonant in dimension. Distinct raisin and milk chocolate notes in the aroma. In the cup big-bodied and creamy, with a tightly woven, deep-toned, caramel- and chocolate-toned complexity.

Notes: A prize winner in the 2004 El Salvador Cup of Excellence competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed eighth out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of just under 89 from an international jury. Produced from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of arabica on the ?Brasil? farm of Carlos Ernesto Guerrero Lara at a growing altitude of approximately 4,800 feet. Coffee Masters is a leading, quality-oriented wholesale roaster founded in 1985. Visit or call 800-334-6485 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those who love comfort but avoid sentimentality.


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.
