Blind Assessment: Round, sweet and balanced. Deeply complex, lasting notes of citrus, nut, caramel and baking spices. Refined acidity, silky mouthfeel and a finish that rounds toward a rich milk chocolate, making the whispers of astringency easy to overlook.
Notes: Farmer Luis Alonso Araujo produced this coffee from trees of the much-admired, bold-beaned Pacamara variety on the Tierra Fertil section of his farm Los Alpes. 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.
