|Roaster Location:||Topeka, Kansas|
|Coffee Origin:||Santa Ana Department, El Salvador.|

Blind Assessment: Big, enveloping aroma: flowers, honey, strawberry-toned fruit, with a deepening hint of molasses and nut. Gently bright acidity, delicately smooth mouthfeel, lemon, cocoa, floral, distinct strawberry notes. Long, sweet, flavor-saturated finish; the subtle strawberry note in particular persists.
Notes: Named after East Africa's highest peak by Aida Batlle, one of El Salvador's (and Central America's) finest and most innovative coffee producers, Finca Kilimanjaro is planted with the famous SL28 variety of Arabica responsible for the finest coffees of Kenya. PT's is a quality-oriented wholesale/retail specialty roaster with a wide and refined selection of coffee blends and origins. The PT's motto is "without the love, it's just coffee." Visit www.ptscoffee.com or call 888-678-5282 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: A more accessible version of the great SL28 profile of Kenya: the fruit notes are less austerely dry; more flowers and strawberry, less black currant.
