El Salvador Beneficio San Miguel dry fragrance shows raw sugar sweetness, with raisin and fig smells, and a bit of a winey hint. The wet aroma is more straight-forward with prominent caramelising sugar sweetness, fruits merely hinted at in the steam. The cup is sweet and finishes clean, and fruited character is a focal point in both light and more developed roasts. City and City+ roasts have honey sweetness accented by dried cherry and a pomegranate/cranberry note that best describes flavour and the tannic mouthfeel.
