Blind Assessment: A very light roast preserves the distinctive and complex aromatics. Crisp but sweet-toned aroma: toast, orange citrus and hints of dry berry and flowers. In the cup the acidity is balanced and rich, the mouthfeel lightly syrupy and the flavor pungently malty with continuing toast, orange, dry berry and floral notes. Long, rich finish.
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 variety and Pacas, a selection of the heirloom Bourbon, has proven to produce exceptional coffee on many El Salvador farms.

Who Should Drink It : An unusual and distinctive profile for coffee connoisseurs and a good light-roasted starter coffee for those who are more familiar with darker roast styles.
