two classic lots: costa rica la minita & colo reserva del patron

We have received two of our old standby coffees. The new crop Costa Rica Tarrazu -Hacienda La Minita has arrived, and in a blind cupping it stands up well against the new costa rica coffees from naranjo and dota. It is exceptionally clean (pristine might be a better term), with delicate, bright acidity. As it cools, floral notes and vanilla emerge. The Colombia Reserva del Patron, from the Narino region in the south, is in. The main features here are remarkable balance, body, sweet chocolate at Full City to F+ roast – this is crowd-pleaser coffee. FYI: I have 4 new lots coming, possibly uploaded today or monday, including another great Kenya and our special Panama Lerida Peaberry, a nice FTO Guatemala, and a super-floral/citric Yirgacheffe. So if you are in need of coffee, you might want to wait for those selections to apear.
