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, The Las Ranas will definitely get your day going!

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.

94 Points by 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.

El Salvador Cerro Las Ranas Espresso Review June 12, 2016
Reviewer: Roberth Bragau from Scottsdale, AZ United States  
I've had several espressos from Klatch and they have all been superb, this included.  I actually brew it using a nel drip, fantastic results.

Tasty June 8, 2016
Reviewer: Joshua A Shaffner from Mount Holly Springs, PA United States  
This was my first taste of Klatch Coffee and I have to say this espresso roast was great. This got me off of my cuppachino kick and back into enjoying a shot of espresso for what it truly should be.

Reviewer: David Nygren from Santa Barbara, CA United States  
I just love ordering from Klatch.  It is like family to me.  I keep track closely of my Klatch and never make the mistake of not having my favorites.
