We’ve got four new coffees and they’re all easy winners. Let’s start with the all-favorite Ethiopian additions. From a far-flung part of the Sidamo region is Ethiopia Organic Shakiso Sidamo “Maduro”, a heavily fruited cup for fans of Misty Valley. Makes a great espresso component too with butterscotch candy and hot chocolate in the profile! A nice counterpart is a decaffeinated coffee from Ogsaddey farm that we call Ethiopia Dry-Process Sidamo MC Decaf – orangey citric notes and syrupy finish! Next is a Cauca coffee from a farm that is up and coming in local competition: Colombia Cauca, Ariel Buitron Microlot, with floral and dark fruit flavors and bittersweet chocolate. Last up is the very exciting Sulawesi Wet-Process Toarco Flatbean… a non-traditional wet-process Sulawesi. It may sound strange, but this is a bright, balanced, and floral cup with dynamic sweetness; it might even be for fans of Guatemala, it’s that refined! Read the full review for the full story on this unique coffee and the others above.
