Blind Assessment: Richly sweet-savory. Mulberry, lemon verbena, dark chocolate, pink grapefruit zest, magnolia in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet structure with vibrant, balanced acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolaty finish with undertones of magnolia and pink grapefruit zest.
Notes: Produced by Ever and Norelvia Diaz of Finca Mileydi, entirely of the Pacamara variety of Arabica, and processed by the semi-washed or honey method (skins are removed but at least some of the sticky fruit flesh is allowed to dry on the beans). The coffee won first place in the 2021 El Salvador Cup of Excellence. Established in 2010, Red Rooster is an organic-certified micro-roaster focusing on socially conscious, high-quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A rich-toned, floral and chocolaty Pacamara cup with ballast from notes of bittersweet citrus zest.
