New coffees: Colombia Cerro Azul Gesha, Honduras Ocotopeque Decaf, Panama Org Berlina, Kenya Kirinyaga Kabingara, El Salv Siberia Bourbon


A pentad of great new arrivals: Colombia Cauca -Cerro Azul GeshaHonduras Ocotopeque WP DecafPanama Organic La Berlina Estate TypicaKenya Kirinyaga AA Kabingara, and  El Salvador Finca Siberia Bourbon. We have an exciting first-time offering: Colombia Cauca -Cerro Azul Gesha. Click through to read the farm story and note that it’s a bit more restrained than an Esmerelda Gesha. The flavor profile is a nice balance of guava, vanilla, and caramel flavors. The new Honduras Ocotopeque WP Decaf takes a range of roasts and is a mildly sweet cup with apple brightness and a dry finish. Folks will remember the classic Panama Berlina Estate‘s milk chocolate, praline, and malted flavors and this arrival rates highly too. The Kenya Kirinyaga AA Kabingara is an intense cup with Concord grape, currant and balanced bittersweet tones; it’s a complex cup. Lastly, we have a Salvadoran customer favorite: El Salvador Finca Siberia Bourbon. This is great at a dark roast for espresso too; look for tangy chocolate and almond in the profile.

The Maker Faire Is Coming to Town

This weekend is The Maker Faire in San Mateo, CA and we are excited about having our own booth to demonstrate coffee roasting basics. Please drop by! We will be located in the Home Grown Village (mostly food-related booths). We have also been invited to demonstrate coffee roasting in their Demo Tent on Sunday at 2pm so that would be a great time to hang out with us. Although we won’t be selling any coffee, we will have time to chat about about it. This will be tons of fun for us since packing boxes and bags usually gets in the way of the social side of our business.

The Maker Faire is a festival dedicated to the “do-it-yourself” attitude so expect lots of creative exhibits relating to food, music, science, vehicles, technology, etc. Learn more about the Maker Faire here.
