El Salvador – Green
|Roaster Location:||El Salvador|
|Review Date:||September 1997|
Two contributors admired this coffee for its soft sweetness. Everyone else found it commonplace: "A bit flat, though pleasant and inoffensive"; "Okay, nondescript." The most outspoken condemnation: "Flat, dusty, institutional." Curiously, although most cuppers found the taste flat, several cited piquant nuances: herbal, spicy, etc. Perhaps the piquancy suggests the potential of this coffee and the flatness is a weakness caused by rushed fermentation or errors in handling or storage. Support for the latter hypothesis comes from one very specific assessment: "Slightly musty in the cup."
A bit commonplace, with some sweetness, and some piquant nuances. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. Strictly High Grown coffee, grown at an altitude of over 4,000 feet.
