New arrivals today: First up is the eagerly awaited El Salvador Finca Kilimanjaro. We received a reduced amount and have limited sales to 1 or 2 pounds. Read the full review but expect a bright Central with almost African character; mint, winey fruit, and tea-like tastes. Next up is the Guatemala Antigua Puerta Verde Bourbon. Want to find out what’s behind the “green door/puerta verde”? You’ll find an Antigua with apple notes in the profile and a nice balance of aroma/flavors ranging from caramel to malt. Lastly we are adding Honduras Organic – Daniel Ordoñez III Microlot, a balanced Central and a crowd-pleaser with nuts flavors at light and dark roasts, cola sweetness at a darker roast.

Peru, or … the longest slideshow ever:


If you can make it through this entire slide show I would be amazed. But there are a few shots in here that make it worth while. It was a great trip, but with poor results in terms of the coffee. Yes, the music is from Peru, 100%. And so it is … and Good luck!
