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.
This is our third coffee from Jorge. Fincona simply has too much good coffee and we can't resist from getting good one for our coffee lover. Honey process give Jorge Bourbon coffee a jammy fruits notes. I'm totally enjoy drinking coffee that has apple jam and red berries flavors. It might be slightly acidic to certain people but i have nothing against it. Great citrus notes all the way from marmalade and end up with red berries sweetness. I definitely pick this coffee if i already bored with natural or fully washed coffee. Sometimes when trying new origin I will go for honey to understand general quality of coffee been produced. Want play a maze game? Try out Jorge Bourbon Honey and you can skip his other coffee.
