This month it's: El Salvador El Cerrito Pulped Natural Pacamara 2016

A bit of an admission, I don't know all that much about this coffee. I have very limited information except for the bare bones and knowing how delicious it is : ( some coffees we have I couldn't ask for more information, there's more than I could possibly ever use, but sometimes there are coffees where all we know are names and a few simple details, this is one of the simple ones.

I found this coffee thanks to my very good friends Carmen & Rafael Silva (of Finca La Fany fame ) when I was visiting them in El Salvador, the coffee shone on the cupping table there but when I'm making buying decisions I never let those sips make the final call. While something might taste amazing on a cupping table when the sun is shining and the breeze is warm in El Salvador it needs to be able to sing that same song when it's rainy and grey and cold in Stafford and Roland is annoying me with 73 different questions! This coffee did just that and so here it is, teeny tiny lot so perfect for you lucky #SSSSSers to enjoy, nobody else, just you!

El Cerrito is owned by Myriam del Carmen Artero de Saldaña and is located at 1,450 metres above sea level in the Apaneca municipality of Ahuachapán in El Salvador. The farm is 15 manzanas in size and grows a mixture of Bourbon, Pacas and Pacamara.

In the cup this is a cloudy lemonade of a coffee, super clean with a silky mouthfeel and sweet lemon acidity.
