Blind Assessment: Deep, complex and layered. Night flowers, molasses, lemon, crisp cocoa in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart acidity, smooth, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Richly balanced, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Farmer Luis Alonso Araujo produced this coffee from trees of the much-admired, bold-beaned Pacamara variety on a section of his farm Los Alpes called The Bank, one of the three original plantings of the now-classic Pacamara variety as it emerged from the laboratory of Angel Cabrera. Pacamara, 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.

Who Should Drink It: Deep, slightly savory yet lushly floral, crisp and lemony, quietly exotic.
