Cup of Excellence El Salvador Brasil
|Spring Grove, Illinois
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.
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
