|Roaster Location:||Chicago, Illinois|
|Coffee Origin:||El Salvador|
|Review Date:||November 2003|
Blind Assessment: A challengingly acidy coffee, by sweetly so. A sensitive roast rounds the acidity and deepens the fruit, turning it toward sweet cocoa and ripe cherry. Glints of jasmine. The cocoa-toned fruit persists agreeably through the finish.
Notes: Los Inmortales is an exceptionally high-grown coffee from the often underappreciated origin of El Salvador. Intelligentsia is a leading Chicago-area roaster with a Keith Haring-style logo, excellent coffee, and a commitment to quality epitomized by the practice of printing roast dates on coffee packaging.

Who Should Drink It: Lovers of big, acidy coffees with just a hint of roastiness.
