- January 23, 2015: We're continuing our "roll" of new coffees every weekend, adding four more this week. Java Sunda Andes is another of the Java Sunda project, this year working with small holders on various peaks in west Java. This lot from the peak "Andes" cups more similar to a Central American coffee than Indonesian, with clean expressions of toffee and chocolate. A balanced cup and "classic" profile single origin espresso. Speaking of Central America, we also added a new Nicaragua, Jinotega - El Buey. A mild cup with flavors of raw sugar and nut, and acidity that's low in the profile. Colombia Pitalito Santa Rita is a crowd-pleaser, convincing sweetness with black tea and apple top notes. And finally, Bali Organic Kintamani Agung provides a nice contrast to the washed Java. A wet-hulled coffee, expect rustic sugars and earth tones, mild acidity, and body.
