massive list of new november arrivals

It’s another one of those massive arrivals of new crop lots, so here’s the list:

  • Costa Rica La Horqueta “Top 50″: A nuanced, delicate cup from the top 50 meter swath of this Costa Rica Estate
  • El Salvador Cup of Excellence -Bella Vista: This was the 9th place lot, and my personal #1; dense body, nutty, creamy, and some neat fruited aromatics.
  • El Salvador Cup of Excellence -Siberia: A very “Bourbon” type cup, balanced, chocolatey, dense body.
  • Brazil Cerrado Screen-Dried Moreninha Formosa: Arriving Monday, a full body, low-acid and chocolatey cup.
  • Peru FTO Cuzco -Ccochapampa Coop: Surprisingly complex, with floral-herbal hints, balanced brightness.
  • Ethiopia FTO Harar -Trabocca Oromia: Rustic Harar coffee with banana and mango fruit notes, good bittersweets.
  • Ethiopia Organic Yirgacheffe: A late-crop arrival, very fresh cup, with citrusy kumquat, floral notes and winey finish.
  • Kenya AA Nyeri -Ruarai Coop: Bright but not “twist-your-tongue-off” acidity, with rose-like floral notes and light body.
