El Salvador, Clover Brew
“The major contributing force to this flavor complexity lies in the concept of the French term terroir. Loosely translated, terroir means “a sense of place.” Coffee, like wine, is sensitive to the environment in which it is grown. Coffee bean characteristics can vary drastically, based on small variations in soil type, climate, and topography.”
The trip out to Kopplin’s is always well worth it, and I normally start with an espresso drink as well with a taste of some of their great single origin coffees. I had the choice between a Burundi or the El Salvador and went the safe way, as I haven’t gotten along too well with Burundi before. I am beginning to really notice different flavor profiles with the various types of brewing methods. It seems like most specialty shops are setting their standard with the Clover brewing method. The amazing tasting drinks and relaxing environment of Kopplin’s will definitely have you coming back for more.
