Pacamara, Yemen and Cascara

Today we are adding an interesting trio, two coffees, and one tea! El Salvador La Montanita Pacamara, Yemen Mokha Harasi, El Salvador Cascara Coffee Tea. This is a fun group of offerings today, El Salvador La Montanita Pacamara is an incredibly juicy cup which really displays the influence of cultivar on the cup, if you’ve ever wondered what makes Pacamara different check this one out. Yemen Mokha Harasi is one of those Yemeni coffees that actually works across the roast spectrum, aromatic wood, chai tea, and pipe tobacco are just a few of the flavors that you’ll detect. Finally, it is tea time again! This year’s El Salvador Cascara Coffee Tea has arrived and is a unique chance to taste a traditional beverage brewed from the dried fruit of the coffee plant. Just steep this like any herbal tea and you will taste hibiscus, tamarind, and raisin; it does benefit from the addition of a bit of honey and is great as iced tea.

O Frabjous Day!

It is hard to convey how happy we are about the coffees being added today without a lot of marketing superlatives. But all of them would be true today. First Colombia Finca Buenavista -Carlos Imbachi is back and as delicious as ever. Really bursting with flavor. Another Colombian coffee, Colombia “Dos Payasos de Tolima” is also stellar in its own right. Next, Sweet Maria’s Sumatepia SWP Decaf Blend is a really wonderful coffee, AND it’s decaf! Not just good decaf, just good coffee first. Papua New Guinea Baroida Estate is back and at its sweet and fruity best. Finally, Nicaragua Dipilto -Finca La Union is a solid Central American cup, very nutty and good for dark roasts.

Two Centrals and a Kenya Peaberry

Today we have three great new offerings: Costa Rica Caturra de Zarcero a classic West Valley cup with vivid and bright citrus. Guatemala Finca La Florencia with a great balance between sweet and bittersweet. Finally, some of you have been wondering about Kenya Peaberry lots this year, so today we are adding Kenya Nyeri Peaberry – Kirimara Estate, this is a super small lot so we can only offer it with a 2 lb limit so everyone can try this amazing, full-bodied, complex, tangerine laced cup. Please be patient and let this one rest an extra day after roasting, and whatever you do, keep it to a nicely developed City+ roast level.
