a new one, an old favorite, a weird one

We have yet another Oaxaca coffee offering. As I mentioned before, this seems to be an “up” year for the region, and these two lots exemplify uniquely different Oaxaca cup character. This second arrival, Mexico Oaxaca Pluma – Don Eduardo has an interesting fruied and winey subtext to the cup, with good tangy chocolate at FC (Full City) roast. I was really impressed with the Brazil Screen-Dried Moreninha Formosa we offered early in the season, and wanted to bring it back. But this is a fresh late-harvest lot arrival, with outstanding body and chocolate roast tastes at FC+. And for you espresso-blend tinkerers, we are offering the unique flavors of India Monsooned Robusta once again!

    Have you ever ‘cupped’ Jamaican Blue Mountain? I see it’s around $35.00 a pound so I won’t be trying it myself but was curious if you had done so and what other coffee it might compare to and how it should be roasted and why’s it so expensive?

    JBM – I have some booked this year and may or may not reject it when it arrives. I usually reject it. It needs to be a. good clean coffee (sometimes it isn’t) and b. actually have some nice flavor attribute i can describe. If I am sitting there cupping a coffee trying to think of something good to say, well, it aint sweet marias coffee. JBM is not S.M. coffee about 90% of the time. -tom
