- July 17, 2014: Three new coffees are available and ready to go! Guatemala Cuilco - Finca El Regalito has a dense brown sugar sweetness and fruits like golden raisin, apricot, plum and black currant. Malic acidity cuts through along with an undercurrent of bittersweet cocoa that lasts long into the finish. Guatemala Proyecto Xinabajul - Familia Castillo brings honeyed sweetness, roasted nuts, and fruited top notes. This lot builds chocolate flavors with roast and makes a great daily cup of coffee with a medium body. Kenya Nyeri Rukira Peaberry showcases blackberry, raspberry, pomegranate, and citrus, in this dynamic cup. Flavors grow and shift as the cup cools, from jammy fruits, to citric high notes, to tart pomegranate, this coffee has it all in spades.
- July 10, 2014: We're headed toward the weekend with three new Central American coffees. Honduras Ocotepeque Manuel Espana is a nice daily drinker, with balance between flavors of dark sugar, toasted nut, and tea-like acidity. Costa Rica Roger Solis La Casona is one of two coffees we're adding from San Martin de Tarrazu. This one's fully washed and shows ultra-sweet caramelized sugar flavors along with brilliant, berry-like acidity. And finally Costa Rica Yellow Honey San Marcos Arracache is a cleanly fruited pulp-natural coffee, boasting a complex profile with aspects of stone fruit, citrus, nut, and black tea. These three together are actually a nice cross-section of Central American coffee, showcasing just how wide the variety of cup characteristics can be from one region to the next as well as with varying processes - throw in a Guatemala and you're set for a Central America cup test!
- June 27, 2014: Five new coffees are ready to ship your way! And, all of them will rip well through your espresso machine too! First up we have Costa Rica Familia Bonilla - Beneficio is fruited with pink grapefruit and apple. Tart, brisk acidity with a walnut and red apple finish. Panama Boquete Finca San Sebastian shows creamy caramel and butter pecan,with tartaric acidity. Big body, crisp acidity, and refreshing mouthfeel. Mexico FTO Chiapas Grapos Cooperative has a dark sugar and butter sweetness, along with flavors of roasted nut. Its a bodied cup, and holds up at the darker roast levels with a clean finish. Mexico Org. Oaxaca La Lagunilla Cooperative has a mild profile of dark sugar and roasted nut. A fresh tobacco flavor carries into the finish with rustic sweetness. India Monsooned Malabar shows best in the darker roast levels or as a blend application. Earthy and pungent, with some sweet/bittersweet sugars in the finish. Its strength is body, and will make an interesting cup for fans of earthy, low acid cup.
