So says Steve Mangigian and the folks roasting the coffee at Zingerman’s Coffee Company.
This month they’re featuring beans from the San Joaquin farm in western El Salvador. This 100% bourbon cultivar comes from one of the highest elevation farms in El Salvador’s volcanic region. A super complex coffee -- citrus and floral qualities, dried fruit, and plenty of sweetness. You should consider drinking this coffee with your wine-obsessed friend and arguing over whose beverage of choice is really more complex.
“We don’t sell too many coffees from El Salvador,” Steve said, “but when we found this one, we knew we wanted to bring it in. I love the bright citrus notes balanced by the sweet finish.”
“It’s really a complex cup of coffee,” Steve explained. “Its aroma is really floral, like a flower shop the day before Mother’s Day. There’s big notes of bright fruits in the finish, and it’s really thick on the tongue. A great mouthfeel.”
And a great coffee to drink during the long, cold days of winter.
