Peru SHG EP FTO - El Palto 'Ronal Carranza Montenegro' *TOP LOT*
Sugarcane, marshmallow, and coconut
From Our Cupping Lab:
An impressively complex Peru Microlot, the El Palto is one of those coffees you want to keep listing flavor notes for, each pieces to a puzzle that comes together effortlessly. Of course, effortlessness is born of effort, and that's undoubtedly the case here, as the fruits of the producers' labor are evident from first whiff. Raspberry and sugar sweetness dominate in the fragrance, aroma and cup!
