Firebat El Salvador El Ausol Whole Bean, 12oz

Sale price$19.50

We are excited to announce the return of this Firebat classic, and even more excited about how this year’s crop has turned out.  This year’s El Ausol produces a more complex and full bodied cup.  The notes of milk chocolate are richer and the body is more robust, allowing it to shine as both a stellar filter roast, as well as a great espresso base for lattes and cappuccinos.  We are excited to have this coffee back in our lineup and can’t wait for you to try it for yourself.

This great bourbon bean comes to us from the traditional coffee region of Apaneca, in El Salvador. Leo Muyshondt descends from five generations of coffee producers and has great devotion to quality. When looking for a balanced and smooth coffee, El Ausol is yours to try!

Roasted for any brew method.

More Info

The Bean. All beans are shade-grown and were hand-picked when ripe, sorted by hand and sun-dried on the patios. After harvest, the coffee was washed to remove the cherry and fruit mucilage covering the bean, and then spread on the patios and turned regularly to allow slow, even drying of the beans for 7 to 10 days. Washed processed coffees are known for their clean and vibrant notes.

The Roast. This bourbon washed delivers a clean and balanced cup leaning to the cacao and sugary notes of the legendary great bourbon variety. This well rounded, classic coffee brews a rich cup with sensible but pleasant acidity, and full body. It is a crowd-pleaser and makes a great choice for your morning or afternoon brew. Different brewing methods will highlight different aspects of each roast, making each cup unique. As a starting point for brewing this versatile coffee we suggest a 15:1 water to coffee ratio, with water below boiling point.
