A Red Bourbon Beauty

A repeated winner of the Cup of Excellence Finca Himalaya, this particular washed lot is another great example of classic bourbon characteristics from El Salvador.

With only a small yearly output, Finca Himalaya is located in Apaneca at 1,500 meters and positions itself as a producer of high quality coffee.

The Coffee Cube roasts this coffee to just the first few snaps into second crack producing a beautifully balanced cup with good body, crisp acidity, some caramel, and a long, kind of raisony-chocolate finish.

Achieving a cupping score of 87.25, this is a great coffee.

Description

A Red Bourbon Beauty

A repeated winner of the Cup of Excellence Finca Himalaya, this particular washed lot is another great example of classic bourbon characteristics from El Salvador.

With only a small yearly output, Finca Himalaya is located in Apaneca at a height of 1,500 meters and positions itself as a producer of high quality coffee.  The coffee is produced entirely from trees of the heirloom Bourbon variety of Arabica beans using the honey method, which means that the outer skin is removed as it is in the wet process, but all or some of the sticky fruit residue is allowed to dry on the bean and later removed by machine along with the parchment skin.  The washed process provides for a clean and focused flavour, derived from the intrinsic qualities of the coffee bean itself.

The Coffee Cube roasts this coffee to just the first few snaps into second crack producing a beautifully balanced cup with good body, crisp acidity, some caramel, and a long, kind of raisony-chocolate finish.

Achieving a cupping score of 87.25, it is a great coffee.
