|Ahuachapan Department, El Salvador.
A ripe orange-toned citrus with a balancing pungent hint of fresh-cut fir runs through the profile from aroma through finish. The acidity is balanced, bright and sweet, the mouthfeel lightly syrupy. Rich and orangy in the finish.
This is a dried-in-the-fruit or “natural” coffee produced from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast.

Who Should Drink It
Aficionados may take interest in this particular incarnation of the pungent-sweet Bourbon character; less scholarly black coffee drinkers may simply enjoy the balanced, ripe sweetness the cup.
