About this coffee

One of our favorite coffees is back in the saddle for 2017. Consistently well-balanced and exciting, the Las Delicias Bourbon hails from our old friends in El Salvador, the Menendez family. This resilient coffee varietal was one of the few that prevailed over the coffee rust epidemic that swept over El Salvador over the last couple year -- we would do well to honor this coffee for its strength and deliciousness.

This year we have a special microlot within Las Delicias (which itself is already basically a microlot) called El Locho. This lot was specifically chosen by a few of our staff that visited El Salvador last year for it’s especially balanced body with hints of fruit.

Honor comes honest for this coffee, as the Las Delicias Bourbon swaggers with sweet hazelnut, rich caramel, and a sparkling tangerine snap. With its refreshing and juicy citrus heights and sweet, rounded chocolatey depths, this coffee is perfectly complementary of itself -- the perfect iced coffee for those hot days to come.
