|Review Date:||December 2011|
Deep, very complex dried-in-the-fruit profile. Fresh fruit notes – tart coffee fruit, red apple, peach – are enveloped in a honeyish sweetness and deepened by suggestions of brandy, fir and just a hint of freshly fallen, composting leaves. Ripely balanced acidity; impressively syrupy mouthfeel. Clean, flavor-saturated finish.
This lot is comprised entirely of the Pacamara variety, a cross between the giant-beaned Maragogipe variety and Pacas, a selection of the heirloom Bourbon. "Natural" process means the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after removal of the fruit. Topéca is a family-owned coffeehouse and roastery based in Oklahoma that specializes in coffee from the family’s farms in El Salvador.

Who Should Drink It
An impressively clean, fresh-toned version of the big, complex fruit character associated with dried-in-the-fruit coffees. The subtly distinctive and complex Pacamara varietal character doubtless also contributes to this coffee’s distinction.
