Colombia El Nacedero - "El Loco" Camacho, is a brilliant cup, and more balanced than the name would suggest. It shows elegance, with blackberry and honey, brisk tea, and a note of fresh basil.
Kenya Nyeri Kigwandi SWP Decaf has all the citrus characteristics and acidity you'd expect from a Kenya - definitely the most pronounced we've ever tasted in decaf coffee!
Guatemala Huehuetenango Small Producers SWP Decaf is a densely sweet cup, with lots of raw sugar and cane juice sweetness, and subtle fruited top notes.
Guatemala Atitlan - Juan Pira is a nice daily drinking coffee with mild acidity, pronounced sweetness, and baking spice top notes. Also makes a classically profiled SO espresso.
Sweet Maria's Moka Kadir Blend has sweet fruits and brooding chocolate notes highlight both applications when roasted toward the Full City range. It sticks close to the original idea of creating a Moka Java with fresh, clean ingredients.
