This is the El Salvador Manzano brought to you by Topeca Coffee Roasters. This fully washed coffee was grown in the Santa Ana region at an altitude of 1,300 - 1,550 meters and consists of the Red Bourbon variety. This cup is well balanced, with notes of almond, honeysuckle and pipe tobacco.
MUCH better than the first batch! Love that it’s single origin too, and not a blend. Still might be a little darker roast than I usually go for, but I’m definitely enjoying this one.
yummy, but a tiny bit too earthy/toasty for me.
Just a really fine coffee
Had a pleasant tang, nice rich flavor.
Not my favorite of the three I've had so far. Flavor wasn't really there for me. I think the first coffee I received is my favorite so far. I believe I'm happier with lighter roasts but not sure if that affects my satisfaction with the flavor.
Very nutty and chocolaty. I feel like I was drinking a lighter version of a Hershey’s chocolate bar with almond. It had a bit of the smoky/tobacco after taste which was a welcome finish to a nicely sweet coffee. I’ll definitely be getting more of this.
The flavors here were fantastic. The only criticism I had was that the intensity was a little low. If I could compare it to the Guatemala Huehuetenango from Anodyne that I got previously, I'd say that something in between the two in intensity would be completely perfect. But again, the flavors were awesome!
Prepared as pourover - Had a pleasant nuttiness (although I could not nail 'almond') and a mild floral quality could be found (I'm not sure I would even know the flavor of honeysuckle?). Could not find 'pipe tobacco', but did notice some sweetness and acidity. Still had moderate body and produced a very enjoyable cup.
Prepared as French Press - Did not necessarily produce a coffee with more body than pourover, but still a very satisfying cup.
delicious and bright. loved it!
We got this in January & really liked it

Nice but didn't blow me away flavor wise. Coming off a previous coffee w a strong aftertaste I found myself wishing for that again.
Balanced, bright, a little nutty with strong earthy notes. Not too fruity. Overall a nice cup of coffee.
Thoroughly enjoyed, crisp and smooth.
A little too roasted for my palate... strong tobacco notes were too much
Great smell! Loved the location, elevation, and single origin. Smooth w/ excellent taste notes inline with description.
Very bitter and wasn't a huge fan of the flavor profile.
The coffee is light and smooth. It has a great nutty flavor.
Ok. Kinda chalky flavored
Boring, but balanced. Really nothing interesting here

This coffee is good, I like the earthiness. For our last shipment though, I'd love to try something even lighter! Could you send us African or Indonesian coffee?
Hi guys, I was very disappointed to receive this as my first coffee on my new gift subscription. This was the same roaster you sent me as my first order in my last subscription. Part of the reason I like MistoBox is that I am exposed to new roasters, so I was bummed to get the exact same roaster for my first order that I got last time. Not a great start to the year...

It tasted kind of fruity to me. Not my favorite.
A bit dirty tasting, it is fine, but not amazing.
Nice light roast with full flavor. Nutty, but not too over-powering with the almond flavor. The floral/crisp flavor was spot on for single serve cups with either chem-ex or French press.
Good balanced flavor.
Great coffee, nutty, flavorful and balanced.
Love it it's my favorite coffee I've ever had I think.
bright, citrusy but balanced, acidity not too sharp, a very nice roast
When I grind the beans, I can feel the nut and tobacco scent. The taste is not bad, actually good. But I prefer the fruit scent and more lighter roast for my coffee.
Light and flavorful - sipping and savoring enjoyment.
Very nice. Smooth drinker with a hazlenut finish. Best one yet.
Fun! Rich! Delicious! This coffee disappeared so fast!
Really good...especially in an aeropress
Nice balanced cup. Picked up a hint of honeydew and the nuttiness.
Great, balanced flavor. It didn't leave a bitter aftertaste, and had almost no acidity. It was great!
