Our Review

After over 100 years of experience, love and pride in coffee growing, the descendants of the Magaña-Menendez family have been at the forefront of quality and control handling. This, coupled with their struggle for sustainability and social function have been the main ingredients for their high quality coffee. As a member of Rainforest Alliance, La Esperanza and the Magaña-Menendez family take great care in growing all while taking the right steps to better preserve the ecosystem in which their coffee grows. This particular lot is hand selected from their best crop and they call it "Los Victorias Bourbon Rosado."

Considering this was a hand selected lot from such an auspicious producer, we weren't surprised at how good it was! When we cupped this coffee, we immediately noticed a dry finish, like red wine, which we thought was different for Central American coffee, but highly enjoyable. We found it to be balanced with a nice, medium body and notes of candied green apple, walnut, raw sugar and just a touch of orange. Be sure to try this one black before you go dumping cream and sugar in it! It's quite sweet and smooth all on its own.
