    Country: Apaneca, El Salvador

    Elevation: 1,300 - 1,500 m

    Process: Fully Washed

    Drying: Sun-dried on patios

    Harvest: November - March

    Export: March - July

    Cupping Notes: Mild Lemon, Seville Orange, Toasted Almonds

    Fine Ground: At a fine grind, coffee should be soft to the touch – slightly finer than granulated sugar.

    Espresso: Great espresso requires skill, patience and quality equipment. Without these things, and a proper grind, espresso can be thin and weak or over extracted and clog in the portafilter. The perfect grind is essential to reaching espresso nirvana; an intensely rich and creamy extraction with thick crema and well rounded flavor.
    Grind: Fine/Very Fine

    Aeropress: The Aeropress is a quick and efficient way to make flavorful, rich coffee with low acidity and bitterness. With specially designed micro-filter technology the Aeropress consistently provides some of the best coffee in just under 20 seconds.
    Grind: Fine/Medium

    Medium Ground: At a medium grind, coffee should be gritty like sand with no considerably large pieces.

    Auto Drip Pot: The Auto Drip style coffee maker is an efficient and hassle-free way to make a fresh pot. With the correct grind and water to coffee ratio, it IS possible to get a great cup of coffee using this method.
    Grind: Medium

    Chemex: The Chemex is an elegant brewing device that extracts only the purest, most flavorful coffee without any bitterness or sediment. Because of the incredible functionality and design, the Chemex, paired with Chemex Bonded Filters, create a pure coffee experience unlike any other.
    Grind: Medium/Coarse

    Coarse Ground: At a coarse grind, coffee is separated into large fragments similar to grained kosher salt.

    French Press: The French Press is a classic and easy way to prepare decadent and smooth coffee and can easily be converted to brew cold coffee. The coffee grounds and water are separated by a fine mesh plunger leaving only fresh brewed coffee after 5 short minutes.
    Grind: Coarse

    Toddy Cold Brew: The Toddy Cold Brew system is a simple and consistent way to extract a delicious and low-acid brew. Oils and fatty acids that would normally settle into hot coffee are eliminated leaving you with a perfectly balanced and smooth cup of iced coffee.
    Grind: Coarse

    I recently left a review for this coffee but realize I left it for the wrong coffee. This particular bag I got too darkly roasted and is bitter and oily. I can't leave an accurate review for this coffee, please disregard my previous review for this one. Thanks!


    Good coffee, hints of citrus.

    Cons:

    I thought the coffee was pretty good, citrus hints, has a fresh cut woody tone to it... perhaps cedarish. Good stuff, it made me realize I tend to like medium roast, full bodied coffees a lot but medium body is definitely decent.


    Very mild roast

    Cons:

    Tried this one for the first time, A very mild coffee. I used two scoops in the Aeropress as I do with all coffee's and the flavor was extremely mild, almost non-existent. Not my favorite FRC coffee, but that is why you try new roasts, always looking for that elusive perfect cup!

    Decided to try a new coffee in my new Zoijurushi coffee maker and of course this coffee hit the mark in all aspects. Very distinct and smooth taste even when brewed quite strong. After drinking this coffee for a few days we will add it to our favorites list of FRC coffees.


    If I could give this 6 stars, I would!!

    I purchased several unique, different coffee selections from FRC......and honestly this one was kind of a last minute "afterthought / add-on" lol. Man, am I glad I decided to get it. I thought the idea of the same family maintaining such quality control, and involvement in the growing, harvesting, and drying process was just really cool, so I wanted to give it a try. By far, the absolute best coffee I have ever tried ( and I've tried quite a few ). Just can't fathom a true coffee lover not liking this one. It's awesome!!
