Blind Assessment: Complex, exhilarating aromatics: cedar, orange, flowers, with a rounding chocolaty sweetness in the cup. Tart, intense acidity; silky mouthfeel. The tart, acidy sensation dominates in the finish, cushioned by a continued chocolaty sweetness.
Notes: Farmer Luis Alonso Araujo produced this coffee from trees of the much-admired, bold-beaned Pacamara variety on a section of his farm Los Alpes called El Banco, one of the three original plantings of the now-classic Pacamara hybrid as it emerged from the laboratory of Angel Cabrera. Pacamara, a cross between the giant-beaned Maragogipe and Pacas, a selection of the heirloom Bourbon variety, has proven to produce exceptional coffee on many El Salvador farms.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of decisively dry but complexly aromatic white table wines should enjoy this very light-roasted coffee.
