|Cayetano is a natural processed bean produced
by a tiny estate high up in the mountains of El Salvador. The farm
produces a very limited number of bags per year and is considered
to be a microlot coffee. An "estate coffee" is basically
a farm that controls the coffee beans from seedlings all the way through
final processing. There are fewer and fewer of these such estates
in countries like El Salvador where civil war and gang violence has
plagued the country for years.
Cupping Notes: Lively cup with broad range of
flavors: sweet lemon, clove, coffee blossom. Pleasant, lingering
aftertaste. High on sweetness, balanced up.
Roasting Notes: Although very high grown, the
natural processing these beans have gone through render them to
be delicate. Do not apply too much heat, if possible. Be gentle

to City +. Otherwise the intense floral notes go right out the roaster's
