Cafe de Lya
|Roaster Location:||San Salvador, El Salvador|
|Coffee Origin:||Santa Ana growing region, El Salvador|
|Review Date:||July 2003|
Aroma is superbly rich, sweet and deep with chocolate notes. In the cup the powerful but low-key acidity is enveloped in richness. Ultimately more about solid balance and satisfying structure than nuance, though an apricot-toned chocolate makes itself felt toward the finish.
This coffee, grown on Bosque Lya farm and roasted and shipped from El Salvador, was recommended by a reader who apparently visited Sweet's El Palacio de los Postres (Sweet's Palace of Desserts) in San Salvador and found the coffee particularly memorable. From the United States, call 011-503-298-9600 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
A fine example of the round, richly lively cup often associated with El Salvador.
