We have been buying this special preparation of El Indio for several years, and this is by far the best cup we have tasted. So much so, that we are featuring this lot as a single origin this season. It has much more fruit in the cup than in years past, and we think it is very well balanced with the body and citrus acidity.
This lot is sorted to a very strict quality control, as only about 20% of the coffee is kept after sorting for this special preparation.
We taste: pomegranate fruit, with citrus acidity
Net Weight: 12 oz.
