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.

not as good a normal August 21, 2016
Reviewer: lisa hitchens from temecula , CA United States  
I buy this and bella all the time.  Its funny you sent me a review because this is the first time I have been unhappy.  This just is not as normal.  I am not sure if it was roasted different or something changed but I don't like it.

Wonderful coffee August 15, 2016
Reviewer: Katie @ Recipe for Perfection from Orlando, FL  
I am very picky about coffee, and this one hit the spot!  Excellent flavor, naturally sweet and syrupy.

Solid coffee July 31, 2016
Reviewer: Scott Vandover from Sparks , NV United States  
Klatch makes good stuff.  Their subscription is expensive and would be way cooler if it came in a half pound bag for nested of 12 ounces, but it is very convenient for espresso junkies.
