The Captain's Coffee
This El Salvador is Rainforest Alliance certified and has notes of Lemon, Orange and Almond. Great for that refreshing afternoon cup!
Arrival Date: July 3rd, 2018
Acidity & Brightness: Bright and crisp, citrusy sweet
Balance & Finish: Well balanced with a quick, refreshing finish
Body & Texture: Medium bodied with a smooth, silky texture
Flavor Traits: Lemon, Orange and Caramel
Grade: SHG (Strictly high Grown) very dense
Certifications: RFA (rain forest alliance)
Processing: Fully Washed
Roasting: Start with a Full City (Medium), or just at the second crack. This coffee roasts very evenly. This is another coffee you'll want to experiment with across a range of roast profiles. The flavor changes--more crisp fruit and cocoa notes in light-medium roasts and the chocolate tones pick up and become increasingly darker chocolate as your roast progresses.
Recommendation: For a refreshing afternoon cup, perfect for a flavorful iced coffee.
Reminder: This is raw coffee. You have to roast it before brewing.
Our Review: The Magana-Menendez family have over 100 years of experience growing coffee in El Salvador. They're innovators in sustainable coffee growing and have made great strides in their efforts to grow high quality coffee that's as good for you as it is for the environment. That's why they're members of the Rainforest Alliance and why they continue to reinvest in making their coffee the model for high quality and eco-friendly coffee in the region.
With a commitment like that, you know the coffee's going to be good! When we cupped this El Salvador, we immediately noticed a clean, floral aroma. What followed was a bright and balanced coffee with a smooth body and crisp, clean finish. We especially enjoyed the notes of lemon, orange and caramel, making this coffee ideal for a refreshing afternoon cup. It's perfect as an iced coffee on these hot summer days! It's light and refreshing, yet still so full of flavor.
