Hazelnut / Chocolate Blueberries / Merlot
Buenos Aires, Santa Ana
Las Nubes was purchased by Isidro Batlle in the 1920’s and still remains in the family. Las Nubes is named "in the Clouds" referencing for this extreme elevation. Isidro had a preference for high elevation farms, and his family’s careful attentiveness to farm practices have built a great legacy for these properties. This region of El Salvador is known for old growth Bourbon trees, some still producing harvestable crops after 80 years. We were able to see some of these very trees when we first visited Las Nubes and the Rio Zorco mill on our first sourcing trip four year ago. In the past we have featured their Kenyan varieties, but this year we are featuring their cherry-dried Bourbon. We are excited to be, once again, featuring one of El Salvador's most famous farms; this time in a more classic presentation.
This cherry-dried lot from Las Nubes starts with notes of dark berries and red wine. These At it cools flavors of chocolate hazelnut spread and dark chocolate covered berries move to the forefront. This coffee is very rich with an approachable sweetness. It is the perfect coffee for sharing with your family through this holiday season.
