I really like to review coffee from Gringo, they usually have such interesting variations of coffee from South America that often amazes me. Today I’m reviewing another El Salvadorian treat that’s called Noruega Natural.
As you’ve read before I love Natural-processed coffee cherries and they often have a lot higher level of sweetness and aroma than the typical Washed-process we often find. However, roasting a natural doesn’t always mean that you’ll bring out the flavors to the max, you need experience and the people at Gringo have that. They always deliever great tasting coffee. I found notes of browned butter, toasted oats and fruity nectarine.

El Salvador Noruega Natural Review:
I liked this a lot, it’s really simple it what it is, but that is often what you search for. Don’t get me wrong I love complex coffee from Nicaragua, but that’s about it. When it comes to El Salvadorian coffee I’m searching for a coffee that’s sweet, fruity and a bit nutty in its flavor and this is exactly that!
