El Salvador - Las Mercedes - La Avila Bourbon - Java Exotic Imports

El Salvador - Las Mercedes - La Avila Bourbon


El Salvador - Las Mercedes - La Avila Bourbon Coffee

A classic Bourbon flavor profile: sweet and well-rounded with a long, lingering finish. We found cocoa powder, cherry, and graham cracker in the aroma, with a hint of guava emerging in the cup alongside juicy red grape acidity. The sweet malt and caramel finish lingers long after the last sip.

The Story

Within hours of harvest, the cherries are brought to the on-farm mill and quickly
depulped, leaving a small amount of the mucilage on the outside of the beans. The
coffee is left in a fermentation tank where enzymes help break down the remaining
sweet, honey-like mucilage. After fermenting for 12-18 hours the coffee is sent through washing channels to completely clean it. The coffee is then dried on patios before being packaged, rested, and shipped to us.
