I received a nice surprise in the mail yesterday—all the way from Stockholm, Sweden. Drop Coffee, based in Stockholm sent a couple bags of their latest offerings. One of which was an El Salvador from Finca Malacara. This is an extremely unique coffee based on my limited experience. I tried it in an aeropress, and it came out with an interesting mix of sweet acidity and nuttiness that reminded me of Kuma’s Tano Batak. The coffee has an aroma that reminds me a ton of rum extract.
I really enjoyed my coffee this morning, and I want to say thank you to the guys and gals at Drop for making my day. I’ve only had coffee from two roasters in Sweden—Koppi and Drop—but I’ve been extremely impressed with that they’re doing. Can’t wait to make having their coffee on hand a more regular thing next year—hopefully its easy to have coffees shipped throughout Europe.
