Las Delicias "L'Ocho Lot" Apaneca-Ilamatepec, El Salvador


Las Delicias “L’Ocho Lot” Apaneca-Ilamatepec, El Salvador. This is Brown’s sixth year partnering with the Menendez family from northwest El Salvador. Each visit is unique, but some things are ever the same. There is a small portion of Las Delicias farm that always beguiles, both with its natural beauty at the crest of one of El Salvador’s highest peaks, and also with the beauty it presents in the cup. That portion is called “L’Ocho” and it is planted with verdant Bourbon and Pacamara varieties. We have brought both varieties in at various times; but the last couple visits we have been consistently impressed with Don Miguel’s Bourbon lots, which displays sweet dried fruits like raisins and dates. At the cupping table in El Salvador it is one of the consistently highest scoring coffees with regular tasting notes like, “Lovely;” “Pretty” and “Well-structured.” (10oz/282gr bags)
