Bourbon – Green
|Roaster Location:||El Salvador|
|Review Date:||September 1997|
Blind assessment:I found considerable intrigue in this coffee: subtle grace notes and substantial dimension in the upper registers. Only one cupper fully agreed with me, however: "Very interesting coffee." Another admired the cup but took it for granted: "Acceptable standard for Central American cup, nothing to write home about." I would have given this sample my highest score if I hadn't detected something off in one cup. I had company here too: Another panelist encountered one off-cup of three which he characterized as "sour," while another noted something "grassy, twisty" in the aroma. For me the problem was a suspicious lushness in the acidity.
Intriguing cup with substantial dimension in the upper registers, but somewhat inconsistent. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. A special selection of coffee from the var. bourbon trees of the Larin family estate.
