A tiny lot we fell across that will see us through to the new crop of El Bosque arriving in a few months' time. This exceptional lot has held very well from the current crop and it was such a lovely surprise to find a coffee that's 8 - 9 months since arriving, holding so well.

This microlot is from the La Providencia farm located in Atitlan. On the farm, forest area is maintained to provide shade for coffee plants, and natural fertiliser created from coffee pulp and micro-organisms is used to maintain the health of the coffee trees.

In the cup it shares much that is great about the El Bosque Bourbon, sweetness, smooth milk chocolate with acidity that's a little more lemon than grape. Like the El Bosque there is some spice that's really interesting in there too. Delicious espresso, ace brewed coffee and a real all rounder.
