Say hello to four new arrivals today! From Central America we’re adding two coffees… the Costa Rica Brumas Finca El Centro wet-process from Central Valley (with thick mouthfeel, plum tastes and winey finish) and Nicaragua Finca San Jose Java Longberry which is an atypical Java-type grown in Nicaragua. Look for great body and balance along with a chocolate roast taste in the Nic. Java and both these centrals can handle a dark roast nicely. From across the water we’ve received new crop Lintong, the Sumatra Blue Batak Tarbarita Peaberry with spice, sarsaparilla, and a light body. We’re rounding out the additions today with Kenya Nyeri Peaberry Kieni. Fans of Kagumoini and Kiamabara should take note of this new farm in the same collective. Look for sharp fruit taste balanced out with dark brown sugar. Check out the full reviews for these coffees!

    Brumas was a great place, and Juan Ramon a lot of fun to hang out with – is he still growing strange varieties? His coffee sounds amazing this year!

    Sorry for the fried brain above.

    Strange Varieties? Fried Brains? I am not sure I follow you. He has caturra, bourbon, villa sarchi and gesha. of the gesha he has about 5 types, meaning they are simply collected from different sources, like esmeralda, catie, etc. the most interesting thing on my visit to el centro farm was talking to his manager about these particular gesha plants that, when you brush by them, emit a apple blossom scent! Most do not. The “papaya-like” fruit flavor from the mucilage is equally as scattered. Also, Juan Ramon has produced bronze tip gesha plants from green tip seedstock. what this adds up to me is that gesha, like pacamara and some other types, is an unstable cultivar. -tom

    When I was there he had a little plot of what I think he said was San Bernardo. Never heard of it before or since.

    As for the fried brain – I somehow thought you had his latest crop, which is likely still in parchment. My brain wasn’t really working well.

    Just tried my first cup of Nicaragua Finca San Jose Java Longberry a couple minutes ago. Wow! what a great tasting coffee. Roasted a “volume” pound in my Behmor at P3, and increased to maximum time after roasting began. Was enough to just get it into 1st crack. I have to say, this is one of the best coffee’s I’ve had.

    The second pound I put a bit less in at the same settings. Got it past 1st crack, right to my liking. Thanks Tom.

    Glad to hear you had such great results Walt. That was the shipment where the container of coffee flipped off the truck on the way from the coffee mill in the mountains to the port! I was so scared the coffee would be damaged, but it came in great. Whew… -Tom
