Blind Assessment:

Rich-toned, sweetly savory. Dark chocolate, honeysuckle, apricot, pink grapefruit zest, cedar in aroma and cup. Savory-sweet in structure with gentle, rounded acidity; full, satiny mouthfeel. The finish resonates with notes of chocolate-toned apricot and cedar.

Notes:

Produced by Maria Elena Botto of Finca Nombre de Dios entirely from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. Processed by the honey method, which means that the outer skin is removed as it is in the wet or “washed” process, but at least some of the sticky fruit residue is allowed to dry on the bean and later removed by machine along with the parchment skin. Red Rock Roasters was founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1993 in a family barn and remains family-owned and focused on quality and freshness.

The Bottom Line: Stone fruit, dark chocolate and sweet florals characterize this all-Bourbon coffee from a woman-owned farm in El Salvador.
