Los Ausoles Cooperative
El Salvador – Green
Although the overall rating earned by this coffee was the same as the rating for the preceding Larin pacamara, the comments were less effusive. No exclamation points, and the poker-faced praise-word "nice" came up twice: "nice berry (raspberry) tang"; "sweet nice but fuzzy." In the comments the body of this coffee was admired more consistently than any other in the cupping: "full"; "buttery." The absence of off-notes, the sweetly fruity acidity, and the fullish body together seem to have lifted this coffee to the top of the cupping.
Full and buttery body, with sweetly fruity acidity with a nice raspberry tang. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. Los Ausoles is a cooperative made up of larger farms; Tizapa apparently is one of the member farms. Pacamara is a botanical variety or cultivar which is a hybrid of caturra and the large-beaned maragogipe varieties.
