El Lobo Blanco is an exceptionally well-balanced cup, exuding elegance with delicate mouthfeel and refreshing juiciness. The coffee is bright, silky and sweet. It’s big, fruit-forward flavours are undeniable. It boasts flavours of Mirabel plum and chardonnay, accompanied by a milky body and uninhibited sweetness. This coffee has pleasant floral notes too, due to the presence of wush wush together with the Castillo in this coffee. In fact, you will notice beans that are very small and dense, which is a characteristic of wush wush. Each sip narrates a story of tradition, innovation, and exquisite flavour that defines this award-winning farm.
