Deeply chocolaty, richly sweet. Dark chocolate, cantaloupe, pipe tobacco, hazelnut, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with brisk acidity; crisp, velvety mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of pipe tobacco and hazelnut.
Produced by Gloria Rodriguez of Finca Nejapa (La Lagunita microlot), entirely of the Red Bourbon variety of Arabica, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Chromatic Coffee prides itself in doing everything in-house and meticulously, from printing its attractive bags to modifying equipment to sourcing and roasting its fine coffees.

A nuanced, rich El Salvador cup centered around dark chocolate and melon, complicated by notes of fresh, sweet tobacco.
