A sweet, well rounded cup. Cherry and citrus mix with chocolate, nut and cedar in aroma and cup, along with a distant hint of lavender. Perfectly balanced, sweet-toned and smooth acidity. Fruit diminishes in the finish focusing the flavor on unsweetened chocolate.
One of several small adjoining farms that make up Finca La Camelia, El Vergel is a 37 acre farm owned by Victor Hugo Garcia Benavente. This lot is made up entirely of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica. Terroir is a microroaster focusing on elite single-origin coffees.
