'Sumptuous coffee. Sweet and easy drinking, especially when you add milk - delicious'
It's good to get coffee from El Salvador again this year and this one is the epitome of a comfort coffee in many ways. Easy to work with however you like to brew, well balanced and sweet, you're pretty much guaranteed a moreish mug of yumminess.
This is the first time in ages that we've bought a Pacamara, a cross between Pacas and Maragogype varietals, discovered in El Salvador back in the late fifties. The beans are larger than usual and have a typical creamy butterscotch-like sweetness.
In this cup, you should also find subtle, sweet red cherry notes and a deep, luxurious, very slightly bitter dark chocolate finish. Add milk, and you'll discover delicious caramel notes which remind us of biscoff biscuits.
