December’s coffee comes from a California roaster called Bridge Coffee Company. The beans are from El Salvador from a region known as Ataco, Ahuachapan. According the Bridge Coffee website, these are “limited edition” beans directly from the grower Villa Espana. If that’s not impressive, the growers are family farmers who won the 2009 Cup of Excellence.
The beans have a blueberry nutty aroma. Grinding the beans releases a wonderful aroma chocolate intermingling with berries. After making the latte, that first sip gave me an incredibly smooth taste. The creaminess of the latte was perfect from start to finish throughout the palate. This latte was meant to be slowly enjoyed in the morning eating breakfast.
