Blind Assessment: Intense aroma: caramel, nut, molasses. In the cup bright-toned acidity and lightly syrupy mouthfeel, with a lemon note that enlivens continued complications of caramel, nut, and molasses that hints at dark chocolate. The molasses and nut in particular carry into a rich, dry finish.
Notes: Farmer Luis Alonso Araujo produced this coffee from trees of the much-admired, bold-beaned Pacamara variety on the Mundani section of his farm Los Alpes. The Pacamara variety, a cross between the giant-beaned Maragogipe and Pacas, a selection of the heirloom Bourbon, has proven to produce exceptional coffee on many El Salvador farms.

Who Should Drink It : A lighter-roasted coffee with a lively balance between lemony tartness and a molasses sweetness.
