Coffee Del Sol’s coffee roaster suggests a specialty coffee once a month on their website and this coffee was recommended by him. El Salvador Alicia from Coffee Del Sol is a medium roast bean from the El Tablon region of El Salvador. El Salvador Alicia is from famed coffee farmer and producer Aida Batlle, a fifth generation coffee farmer whose yields are highly sought after. She worked with another local coffee farmer to create the Alicia El Tablon. When opening the El Salvador Alicia beans there is a warm aromatic nutty aroma that wafts from the package. The El Salvador coffee beans were freshly ground and brewed with a French Press, and tasted with and without half and half.
El Salvador Alicia coffee on first sip has a nutty smell to the brewed coffee, and the taste is full and mellow with a enticing flavor. The coffee when brewed is very smooth tasting with no bitterness. For a medium roast coffee the taste is very inviting and satisfying. This is a calming, pleasant tasting coffee you can enjoy every morning to welcome the start of your day.
