We are loving our September coffee of the month! This honey processed coffee from El Salvador is a lighter bodied coffee with a bold, rich flavor. It starts off with distinct sweetness in the front of the cup that reminds us of cola or molasses. As the flavor develops on your palate, deep notes of toasted nuts develop with a very mellow pear flavored acidity. The toasty flavors follow through into the long and smooth finish.
Roast Color: Medium-Dark
Cupping Notes: Cola, Toasted Nuts, Pear
Story: Cerro Las Ranas (the Hill of Frogs) coffee is named after the farm’s lagoon that is populated by thousands of frogs, located in Apaneca within the department of Ahuachapan, El Salvador. The coffee is produced by JASAL, a family owned operation where Jose Antonio Salaverria and his sons take great pride in their meticulous attention to detail, from year-round farm management to quality control in the cupping lab, and everything in between. In the pulped natural process (also called a honey process), JASAL pulps perfectly ripened cherries and then dries the coffee beans, still covered in mucilage, on clay patios while constantly turning the beans to ensure even drying.
