El Salvador Shangrila Red Honey - SOE$ 15.50
Our new single origin espresso is a real treat. We looked for something on the sweet side. Luckily, El Salvador always shows up. Finca Shangrila is located amongst the Apaneca-Ilamatepec mountain range in western El Salvador. Shangrila is 100% cultivated with the bourbon variety.
Although this is another bourbon, the notes are extremely different than the last one from Burundi. This bean is grown at 1450-1500 MASL and processed red honey. The roast is a delicate modern espresso that polishes a round body and brings out the sweetness. Caramel notes stand out but a nice apricot-like acidity pops and chocolate truffle nuance with the mouthfeel.
