single estate – el salvador siberia estate bourbon
Notes from the importer: “The dry fragrance is beautiful, sweet floral roast notes, ripe orange and red fruits, cane sugar. The wet aroma is sweet: light brown sugar, caramel sauce, sweet ripe citrus, delicate flower blossom scents. One gets cinnamon toast notes along with the soft floral accents. The cup has juicy red apple flavors, hibiscus floralness, like the tea called “Jamaica” (pronounced Ha-my-ka) in Latin countries. It’s sweet, and the aromas persist on the palate; it has what they call “after-nose”. The body is light, but suits the cup character overall. In the finish there is a root beer sweetness as the cup cools.” 250g. Whole Bean. Only $15.

This cup has a very attractive, clean-fruited character from start to finish. In the dry fragrance, there is a mild cherry-vanilla and hint of coffee flower scent, along with hazelnut roast tones. Adding the hot water to brew, wet aromatics reveal caramel and cane sugar with a touch of peach and nut. In the cup the fruit has ample stone fruit characteristics (peach and apricot), malic sweetness, nutty roast tones and medium body. It’s a mild cup overall, lightly fruited, very refined overall. The aftertaste is slightly drying, but sweet and pleasant.
Wonderful combination of chocolate, caramel and nuts, the typical profile of great coffees from Brazil. This exceptional example also shows spices on the finish, especially a cinnamon note. The acidity is present but not heavy on the citrus, making it a interesting single origin espresso, reminiscent of an Illy light roast. Superb farming techniques from this superior single estate.
