This coffee will be fresh roasted for you. We expect Topeca Coffee Roasters will roast and ship this coffee in 1-2 business days depending on their roasting schedule.
This is the El Salvador Manzano brought to you by Topeca Coffee Roasters. This Direct Trade 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.
I was surprised to find that I liked the notes of tobacco. To me, the nuttiness came across more like hazelnut rather than almond, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I also noted honey and caramel. Acidity was pretty tame - but there was a bit of a sourness to it. Brewed with a French press.
Not bad. Decent aroma and great balance. BE CAREFUL WITH AERO PRESS. if you so much as TOUCH the grinds when compressing, it will taste like battery acid.
Easy to drink with decentflavor
Good coffee but I think the pipe tabacco was a bit to much for me.
The beans have a sweet tobacco smell with hints of nuts. The brew was slightly sour on the front of the tongue, but finished clean with some sweetness. The tobacco flavor carried through. Very different from the dark roasts we’ve had in the past. Very pleasant coffee.
by far our favorite!

Was a well balanced coffee with the Flavor notes being spot on. Wishing for a bit more complexity.
Really enjoyed this blend and enjoyed the almond/nutty notes. Tasted great in my Chemex!
A really solid, balanced cup. Comforting.
We liked this coffee better than the first one! The beans seemed like they were high quality and the roast was nice and balanced. We liked the nutty flavor but it was lacking some brightness/fruit flavors that we tend to prefer in our coffees. Overall a good bean.
Delicious. Really liked it
This is definitely different from the normal, fruity/floral light roasts I prefer, but I've really enjoyed it. I can consistently taste the almond and pipe tobacco notes, which give it a nice, robust flavor and body that I've actually really enjoyed the more I've drank it.
Good earthy coffee with nutty overall flavor with lingering "toboacco"which I call earthiness. A good breakfast brew that is basic but not "sexy.". Much better as french press rather than pourover. French press highlights the balance and earthiness. Full bodied
I'd like to ban the notes of "tobacco" going forward.
I like how smooth this one tastes. There isn’t any bitterness to it.
Good average grade coffee. Nice on the roast...bean was not oily! Not a great price point for the club. This coffee can be purchased online for $11.99/bag. Definitely not want I would expect in a $20 12 oz bag of coffee.
Not as good as my first coffee. May be all in my mind, but thinking of notes of pipe tobacco - not a favorite taste. Definitely smooth, though. Doesn't appear as complex as my La Folie coffee was. Or, perhaps I miss the chocolate!
A little too nutty - left kind of an odd aftertaste
Love it. It fits my coffee pallete near perfectly.
Tried it twice with two different waters. Didn't love it either time. Nutty flavor kept it bland and middle-of-the-road. Nothing profound or memorable about it.
The flavor is a little toned down. Not quite bold or bright enough.
smooth, pleasant, complex notes but not the same depth of richness as the Anodyne roasting company's:
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...
Teri and Jeff
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!
