New: Papua New Guinea Baroida, Guat. San Juan Sacatepequez, & Colombia Carlos Imbachi


Triple pick! We have 3 great new ones today: Papua New Guinea Baroida Plantation, Guatemala San Juan Sacatepequez – Villa Lupe, and Colombia Finca Buenavista -Carlos Imbachi. The Papua New Guinea Baroida Plantation is a mix of dry and fresh fruit, with spice and ginger tones. This coffee is from a third generation family farm utilizing our Farm Gate pricing. Alert! Guatemala San Jose fans should take note: our new Guatemala San Juan Sacatepequez – Villa Lupe is from the same region with well-structured citric fruit and candy-like notes. This also makes a great SO espresso! Last up is a limited offering of the popular Colombia Finca Buenavista -Carlos Imbachi. Folks will remember this sweet cup profile with guava, peach, tamarind, and cane sugar. (It was also an award winner at SCAA in 2009/10) We are limiting sales to 5-lbs so everyone gets to try it this year!

Roast Coffee Pairing #55: Indonesia Spotlight – Java and Papua New Guinea

The Java Kopi Sunda is the result of a special project, and is a very special coffee indeed; less like a typical Indonesian coffee, more like a washed Island profile coffee, mild and sweet.  This is likely due to the wet processing, rather than the wet hulled processing typical of Indonesian coffees.  Shows a completely different face on Indonesian coffee. The Papua New Guinea AA Kimel is another wet processed coffee, clean, sweet, with fruited notes.  So this pairing of atypical Indonesia coffees display characteristics not normally associated with this region: bright, fruit forward flavor profiles.  The Java lot has more dark fruit notes with bittersweet chocolate, while the PNG is clearer and brighter.  They both have slight hints of foresty flavors that remind you where they were grown but we love the chance to taste so much wonderful clean fruit from these historic coffee growing regions.
