Pacas Martinez Tonita
El Salvador – Green
|Roaster Location:||El Salvador|
|Review Date:||September 1997|
Almost everyone remarked on the paradox of an acidity that read as complex and fruit-toned, yet oddly hard. "Very good taste but not refined, bright and brassy"; "winy but flat"; "sharp yet sweet"; and most succinct: "fruity sour." Several remarked on the perfumes in the aroma and top notes, variously characterizing them as fruity, floral, and winy.
An intriguing paradox of a coffee: very good taste but not refined, bright and brassy. Originally reviewed by a panel as a green coffee. Pacas Martinez Tonita is grown on a family-owned estate.
Who Should Drink It
An intriguing (though not universally pleasing) paradox.
