Description
 

Our 94 point espresso returns along with it's sweet blast of caramel, brown sugar and molasses flavors followed by a creamy dark chocolate and orange finish.

Coffee Review Blind Assessment:
Complexly structured: quite sweet with a tart and bitterish balance. Honey, tangerine, dark chocolate, hints of flowers and apricot in aroma and small cup. Full, buttery mouthfeel. The short finish is sweet and gently flavor saturated; the long turns richly drying. Pronounced presence in milk: fat-bodied, chocolaty, with a hint of flowers.

Owned and operated by JASAL, the home of renowned producers Jose Antonio Salaverria, Cerro Las Ranas takes its name from a lagoon that is populated by thousands of frogs (Hill of the Frogs).

Cerro is the pride and joy of Don Jose Antonio and since the devastating Santa Ana Volcano eruption in October, 2005, he has restored the farm to pristine shape. Ripe, red cherry is picked and delivered to Las Cruces Mill where it undergoes a process pioneered by JASAL that is now becoming more and more common throughout Central America. The cherry is processed normally but the coffee is then immediately sent to the clay drying patios still covered in the sticky mucilage where it is laid out and constantly raked and turned to ensure even drying.

This process (called Pulped Natural or “Miel”,honey-processed) imparts a subtle sweetness and fruit note, lending an atypical complexity to the cup.

Another nice El Salvador bean October 23, 2016
Reviewer: Scott Forbes from Panama City, FL United States  
So far I've tried this Drip Ground, and espresso ground for Cafe Americano from my Rancilio espresso macine. In the latter I use 4 drops of liquid Stevia.  And the latter stands out as a creamy slightly sweet cup.  Very nice.

El Salvador Cerro Espresso (Honey) October 6, 2016
Reviewer: Chuck Haser from Antioch, CA United States  
My first purchase of this espresso was Aug 2014. The El Salvador Cerro became my favorite over all the other Klatch brand coffees making lattes with my Bezzera BZ10 espresso machine. I would describe the taste as similar to the Belle Espresso but with more distinct tones of flavor.

The taste held up until my last purchase in July 2016 which I felt came up a little short of what the previous batches were. I just bought another 2lbs...we'll see how it tastes. Rating? 5+ on previous batches, 4- on last purchase.

El Salvador Cerro Las Ranas Espresso (Honey) October 5, 2016
Reviewer: Josh Devon from Littleton, CO United States  
Delicious coffee (El Salvador Cerro Las Ranas Espresso (Honey)).  However, with so many coffee beam providers, you may want to consider a customer loyalty program.
