  • El Salvador Los Naranjos

Roast: Medium Review Date: November 2004
Origin: Los Naranjos Farm, El Salvador Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Aroma and finish are balanced and understated, almost simple, but the cup transcends limitation with its big-bodied, sweet-toned opulence. There is nuance here: roast-influenced cedar and dark chocolate in the aroma, caramel and perhaps raisin in the cup, but the sensory payoff is the fatly silky body and round, resonant depth.

Notes: A prize winner in the 2004 El Salvador Cup of Excellence competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed thirty-third out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 84 from an international jury. Produced from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of arabica on the Los Naranjos farm at a growing altitude of approximately 4,600 feet. Origins Coffee Roasterie is a small-batch wholesale and retail specialty roaster serving southwestern Florida and beyond. Visit www.originscoffeeroasterie.com or call 239-542-2299 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Those who want to be surprised by comfort ? for example, sitting in a chair so comfortable that one rediscovers the act of sitting.


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.
