Green Coffee Beans
We are very proud of our unroasted green coffee selection of 50+ types. Each is meticulously cup-rated, and selected from particular current crop lots, representing the "best of the best!"
- February 13, 2015: We're finishing out the week with two and two: Africa and Indos. Rwanda Rulindo is the final lot from our first Rwanda container, showcasing true dual-purpose - complex cocoa and spices, subtle fruit notes make great brewed coffee and espresso. And Zimbabwe Chipinge is a mild cup, but with reverberating sweetness, perhaps has more in common with Latin American coffee than African! We also just received a fresh shipment from Java, with Sunda Kamojang being the first addition. At City+, it achieves sorghum syrup sweetness with a nice mix of dark chocolate and walnut. And last but certainly not least, Sumatra Dry Hulled Pantan Murara is a unique, fully washed Sumatra coffee. The profile is loaded with dark sugar flavors, and a smattering of fruited notes. It's heavy on the palate, and unlike wet-hulled coffees, earth tones are much more background than up-front pectin sweetness.
- February 6, 2015: Ethiopia Dry Process Yirga Cheffe Cheleba is a nice later arrival Ethiopia new to our list. With actual "new crop" Ethiopias still a few months out, this fruit-forward cup rounds out our Ethiopia offers nicely. The profile is loaded with berry and fruit punch flavors, pectin sweetness, and a nice cocoa finish. We also added two South American coffees, and both make great espresso options too. Brazil Fazenda IP Yellow Bourbon is pulp natural processed coffee, so while fruit flavors do show in the profile (especially when cool), it is much more oriented around flavors of burned sugar and cocoa. And Nicaragua La Bastilla Llamada is a mild coffee, toffee-sweet, and with roasted nut and tea flavors. Both are "coffee" coffees, crowd pleasers, if you will, and taste great in the middle roast range. Full City - Full City+ is a great level for espresso.
- January 30, 2015: Four new single-origin coffees and a brand new Workshop Blend! Workshop #34 - Ewe Tu, is the first blend of 2015, which is the Year of the Sheep in the Chinese Zodiac chart. A blend of washed Ethiopia and Papua New Guinea coffees, this is an espresso on the wilder side, syrupy sweet, and loaded with chocolate complexity. Burundi Kibande Ruyaga is our latest new crop Africa coffee, and strikes a nice balance between honeyed sweetness and lemon-like acidity in the light roast ranges. Guatemala Huehuetenango Xinabajul Peaberry cups with cleanliness, flavors of apple and caramel, and works great all the way into 2nd snaps. A really nice later arrival Guatemala. We also added one of our last two lots from Guatemala Antigua Finca Cabrejo. One of the most balanced and Guatemalas we purchase, not to mention versatile in the roaster, and in brew method. Hopefully we can keep this one going for another few weeks yet! And finally, Papua New Guinea Bauka Ginipa is the newest PNG. All of the Bauka Plantation coffees we bought this year have been unique from one to the next, and this coffee continues that streak, with complex molasses sugars and roasted barley tea flavors.
