Cup of Excellence ~ El Salvador – Santa Maria

Sitting in the espresso bar today watching a blustery day that is threatening to rain.

Luckily I’ve been dialing the latest Cup of Excellence coffee we’ll be featuring on the Clover. The El Salvador – Santa Maria (the #11 place in the 2008 Cup of Excellence El Salvador). It has brightened an otherwise dreary day.

We should have it on the menu by the weekend. We’re fine tuning a coffee with definite Almond / Blackberry sweetness. There’s also a Brown-Sugar chocolately flavour note in there that we’re chasing down right now, we’ll see if it ends up in the final cup. Really delicious even in a ‘not quite ready to serve’ cup.

Drop by to try this one and the other new coffee on the Clover menu – Papua New Guinea : Kunjun … yum!
