Rich and pungent aroma dominated by sweet aromatic wood and hinting at chocolate. Fruit forward acidity; soft, syrupy mouthfeel and complex flavors of tart cherry and vine-ripe raspberry, balanced by fir and dark chocolate. Deceptively simple finish, with bittersweet fruit-toned chocolate reemerging in the long.
A prize winner in the 2010 El Salvador Cup of Excellence (www.cupofexcellence.org) competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed eleventh out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 86.50 from an international jury. This coffee was produced from trees of the much-admired, bold-beaned Pacamara variety on the La Pinera farm. The Pacamara variety, a cross between the giant-beaned Maragogipe and Pacas, a selection of the heirloom Bourbon variety, has proven to produce exceptional coffee on many El Salvador farms. Roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit
