Topic: El Salvador (8 msgs / 166 lines)
1) From: C. Marley
Has anyone tried El Salvador Santa Adelaida '02?  I would recommend it
as an alternative to a Kona.  It is a very smooth sweet coffee with a
good deal of fruitiness, although not citrus - more apples and pears -
and milk chocolate.  I wok roasted in order to bring out the body and
mute the acid (as I don't like the acidity of most of the Central
Americans), stopping just before second crack. This cup was pretty near
perfect, with good body, and a rich milk chocolate aftertaste, and a
sure winner with friends who do not like the bitterness they taste in
many coffees.  I think the Kona lovers might appreciate this one. I used
a French press to brew - to get the max flavor.

I haven't yet but you just got me to include it in my next order.  
Sounds like a great coffee for guests.

Tom used to stock El Salvador San Rafael-Los Naranjos '01.  My SanRafael 
stock is down to the last couple #. The Santa Adelaida '02 seems to have 
similar characteristics.  Has anyone compared the two?

Roger that El Salvador coffee from SM - it's great!!!  Tom included this one in
the 4 pack sampler I recently bought and I finally got a chance to roast some
last night.   You may recall that I previously posted about the lousy central
Texas weather (Roastin' Blues) - well we finally saw the sun yesterday and I
jumped at the chance!!!
I used a hot air popper and took the roast to just the first few snaps of 2nd
crack.  Nicely dark brown with just a hint of oil sheen.  Let it rest overnight
and ground some this AM for drip.  It's has a nice smooth taste, slightly
bright, with a lingering caramel aftertaste.  As Tom says in the cupping
review, this one is a crowd pleaser.
Has anyone tried this one at a darker roast (rolling 2nd crack) and does it
hold up well?
Thanks!
Darren

HOME! I finally made it home. Tamper orders are behind! Everything is out o=
f 
whack! However, I picked a good time to visit SM. Tom gave me a bunch of hi=
s 
roasting samples (already roasted) from the El Salvador Cup of Excellence.=
 
Right now I am drinking number 1, Luis Rafael Perez San Roberto. It is a 
Pacamara! Sweet, complex, and chocolote all over the palate. It has a nice=
 
clean finish. Very smoooooth. I think Tom told me this stuff went for close=
 
to $20.00 a pound to a non-USA buyer. There were 24 bags in the lot. The 
nice thing about being home is the comfort of one's own equipment. I am 
becoming an El Salvador Guy!

Greetings h'roasters,
An experience to share. I've been roasting a supply of El Salvador Majahual.
Saturday the beans went under the gun. I made some for my office mates on
Tues and Wed and we all really enjoyed it. Then Thursday came and everyone's
mouths dropped when I made it (French press). We were all floored at how
unbelievably good it was. The cocoa and chocolate were percolating
everywhere. Then Friday came and the roast was back to outstanding.
Anyone else have this experience on the fifth day of their El S M?
