El Salvador Malacara B
|Roaster Location:||Brooklyn, New York|
|Coffee Origin:||Volcan de Santa Ana region, El Salvador.|
|Est. Price:||$18.00/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||August 2014|
Softly and distinctively pungent. Roasted cacao nib, butterscotch, narcissus-like flowers, tangerine-like fruit in aroma and cup. Gently vibrant acidity; full, velvety mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but lingers in a crisp, sweet finish.
Finca Malacara, an old and celebrated El Salvador coffee farm, was divided into three farms (A, B, and C) in 1955. This lot, from farm B, is composed entirely of coffee from the heirloom Yellow Bourbon variety of Arabica. An integral part of New York’s coffee renaissance, Brooklyn-based Café Grumpy opened its first café in 2005 and has since expanded to six locations, including a roasting facility and bakery.

Who Should Drink It
The sweet yet dry fruit character of Bourbon-derived varieties of Arabica presents here with subtle understatement that should please those who value gentle acidity, full mouthfeel and quietly distinctive aromatics.
