    Roaster’s Notes
    Our long term direct trade partner Fernando Diaz of Finca Santa Ana introduced us to his family's other farm, El Retiro del Quisaya, this past season. This lot composed entirely of the Bourbon variety features citric and milk chocolate aromas, with a range of fruit flavors in the cup, including yellow plum, Rainier cherry, and tangelo. Butterscotch and vanilla cream sweetness are complemented by a bright acidity and creamy body.
