Paradise Coffee Roasters El Salvador Finca Guachipilin coffee is grown at 1200 meters above sea level on the Finca Guachipilin farm known mostly for its very sweet and citric heirloom bourbon variety of Arabica coffee. The Roaster describes this coffee as having a warm fragrance with sweet green pepper and nuts; intensified in the wet aroma with nuances of ripe cherries. It is sweet and herbaceous in the cup, with hints of thyme, hibiscus and ripe juicy pear. The finish lingers with a smoky flavor reminiscent of barrel-aged bourbon. Paradise Coffee Roasters El Salvador Finca Guachipilin coffee is fully washed and sun dried medium roasted giving it light body. Packaged in 12oz bags.
