Catalogue/Cuvee Coffee: El Salvador Cerro Las Ranas

November 26, 2009

I’m starting a journal to Catalogue the coffee’s i’ve had over the last couple months, as well as brewing ratios and other helpful information so i can start to see trends in what i’m tasting. This blog will be an expanded form of what i’m writing as far as I can perceive now.

For today i had a brew of some Cuvee Coffee that David over at Tuscany Coffee was generous enough to share a bit of!

Here are the Specs-
Roaster: Cuvee Coffee
Coffee: Cerro Las Ranas, El Salvador
Region: Juayua
Varietals: Bourbon and Hybrid
Altitude: 1450 – 1600 meters
Harvest: January – March
Process: Pulped Natural
Roast date: Estimated Nov 22

Hario V60 #1 Pourover
10 ounces
2:15 total brew time

When the brew was hot i was immediately struck by the sweet orange acidity and flavor, but as it cooled off i noticed the dense body and raw sugar/molasses like complex sweetness.

Thats all for now, i’m getting two coffee’s this week from Intelligentsia and will hopefully be able to do some experimenting with those after i get over this cold!
