Delicately lush, very sweet-toned aroma: flowering grass, honey, molasses. In the cup sweet but intense acidity, light body, silky mouthfeel, flowers, pipe-tobacco, lemon notes. Sweet, rich, nut-toned finish.
The fields of Finca Las Lainez are planted entirely in the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. A prize winner in the 2008 El Salvador Cup of Excellence (www.cupofexcellence.org) competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee this lot attracted a score of 89.31 from an international jury.

Who Should Drink It
Those who value the subtle, complexly honeyish sweetness of a very pure, very light-roasted coffee.
