June 21 cup of excellence tasting notes

by | |

They were all from El Salvador. Oh, El Salvador…

#1 Apaneca Ilamatepec Suiza: Sweet tobacco, tart dried fruit and rich earth.

#2 Apaneca Ilamatepec El Ausol: Lots of high notes - very tart and sweet with a bit of creamy earth.

#3 Alotepec Metapan La Matanita: Tart, nearly shrill approach leading into earth & chocolate, though slightly out of balance.

#4 Apaneca Ilamatepec San Isidro: Tangy cherry & woodsy earth, dark chocolate, and a light finish.

#5 Apaneca Ilamatepec Los Andes: Tropical fruit, sweet cream, tobacco & dark chocolate. Great balance and nice, round mouthfeel. Delicious.
