Roast Review: El Salvador Siberia Estate Pacamara

The El Salvador Siberia Estate Pacamara was purchased just over a month ago from the wonderful folks at Sweet Maria’s. We’ve toyed around with various roasts, though haven’t yet taken it all the way to a Full City+. This most recent batch (FC) came out nice and even as we brought it just to the start of the second crack. This morning’s cup had a smooth body and nice acidity. The tartness that rolled down your throat that was present the first day (approx. 18 hours after roast) mellowed out the second day. The cup had was quite fruity (somewhere between lemon and cranberry) but became cinnamony as it cooled. For the next batch, we’ll take this just a bit darker (FC+) and see if we can’t really bring out that spice.

Pairing suggestion: Beirut’s  “La Llorona” . The vocals match the body of the coffee and horns that accent the song much like the acidity in the cup.
