El Salvador El Caracol Pacas - Middle roasts yield a balanced coffee, rounded dark sugar sweetness, and cocoa bittersweetness at the perimeter. Look for muted top notes of golden raisin, grape, and glazed orange peel. Good for espresso.
Ethiopia Dry Process Illubabor Dabi - Dabi has cooked fruit and rustic earth notes, flavor accents include dried berry, cantaloupe, musky cherimoya, and canned plums. Bittersweet and earth-toned chocolate at Full City along with big berry character. Good espresso.
Guatemala Hoja Blanca Don Aurelio - The cup is brimming with raw sugar and fruited sweetness, sweet sucanat and turbinado sugars, accents of canned stone fruit, berry, red apple at City+, and Full City yields rich Dutch drinking cocoa too. Good espresso.
Nicaragua Monte Libano Caturra - Compact sweetness and core bittering tones across a wide range of roasts, brown sugar, hints of black walnut and a muted dried fruit note. Mild mannered brightness and cocoa character also make this an espresso option.
