Our friend Dilcoffeetrail based in Brunei asked us to source darker tone coffee and we like the idea since Arkib is little bit heavy of fruity coffee side. It is good for us to pull back us from dreamland where there are still coffee lover who enjoy jammy, bold or chocolaty type of coffee. We have plenty of El Salvador option for this batch including Jorge Rivera Pacas and Bourbon. This Fincona lot is a micro lot farm from Finca La Argentina owned by Jorge Rivera. 70% of coffee farm has been planted with Bourbon varietal and balance planted with unique varietal like Centeramericano H1, Icatu, Obata and Pacas.
Deep flavors! This Fincona Bourbon Natural is my top favorite coffee for this October selection. Beside a natural coffee fan, I find this coffee has slightly high acidity for a natural process coffee. The quality of acidity also quite unique which I taste tartaric acid quality like a fig. The more I enjoy this coffee I begin to pickup purple grape flavors and instantly it put a smile on my face. This is kind of natural coffee that I like, not too heavy on fermentation taste but more lean towards clear fruits notes. I must say i'm slowly loving El Salvador coffee. It is not really to 'betray' you current favorite origin but this is tough one. Please drink it for me before i completely offering El Salvador coffee only.
