Sweet Marias Moka Kadir Blend This is a short run - just a few hundred pounds in total - based around a small amount of Yemen we came across. It has a thick inky body and a long finish dominated by fruit nectar and bitter-sweet chocolate.
Burundi Muyinga Butobwe, a spiced cup, molasses sweetness, sharing many characteristics with our Rwandas
Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Grade 1 Haraicha is a fruit-forward coffee, syrupy sweet and loaded with jam-fruit top notes.
Peru FTO Diomer Chavez Perez makes a great brewed cup, at City+ showing balance between developed sugar sweetness, black tea-like acidity, and nut flavors.
Java Buan Rongkup, a wet-process Java, producing a rare cleanliness from this part of the coffee-producing world. Restrained bittersweetness, tart to tannic fruit notes, a blend of black walnut and bittering cocoa.
Sumatra Toba Batak Peaberry shows matched sweetness and body, flavors of brown rice syrup, dark berry, and papaya.
Look for a few more new additions at the end of this week!
