New El Sal Arrivals
Filed under News and Stories
This week we have unloaded some exciting new arrivals from El Salvador! Here are the highlights:
From the Pacas Family we again have some of the El Talapo which is a mix of Bourbon and Pacas varieties. This coffee has a full body, with cherry, molasses and dark chocolate. It would work really well for espresso applications. We also have a coffee called El Timbo which comes from the Paca's La Guachoca farm. This 100% Bourbon variety coffee has a honey sweetness, a winey acidity and notes of orange, plum and cocoa. It would really well for both espresso and filter applications.
From the Alfaro Family we have again brought a lovely lot of the El Carmen which is suited to espresso with lingering caramel sweetness, balanced with lime and green apple acidity and creamy milk chocolate body.
From the Da Silva's (who also own La Fany) we have a lovely 20 bag lot of coffee from a small farm called San Cayetano that the Da Silvas also own. San Cayetano is a small 7 hectare farm located at 1400m above sea level. This coffee is floral and elegant with bright orange acidity and citrus notes of mandarin, lemon and lime.
In addition to these coffees we have some lovely Guats in store including a brand new coffee from a group of small producers in Antigua called Entre Volcanes. This coffee has a lovely sparkling citric acidity, honey sweetness with notes of cherry, orange, passionfruit, lime and cocoa.
In addition are excited again to have La Perla which is grown in the El Quiche region. This years crop is bold juicy and complex, with sugarcane sweetness, citric acidity and notes of apricot, plum, cocoa and berries.
