El Salvador Siberia Washed Cup of Excellence 2012


Bean name El Salvador Siberia Washed Cup of Excellence 2012
Country El Salvador
Region Santa Ana
Other info Variety: Bourbon


The name Rafael Silva might be a familiar one to lovers of El Salvador coffee, Raphael and Carmen being the owners of one of my favourite coffees: La Fany. I visited this farm with them, back in 2007 and loved it.

We have also had this coffee before on Has Bean and we loved it, but for a number of reasons we have not seen it here in the UK for a while. Well, that's now changed.

Grown on the opposite side of the Santa Ana volcano to La Fany, this coffee shares lots of the great characteristics of Santa Ana Bourbons. This coffee is super special, I am so pleased it's back.

In the cup expect a milk chocolate body with a walnut edge to it, with a clean sweet aftertaste that just goes on and on.
