Peru Org Cajamarca El Chaupe


New 2015/16 crop.

Peru Org. Cajamarca El Chaupe coffee is sourced from family-owned estates located in the region of Cajamarca, Peru.  The coffee is harvested by indigenous families on farms averaging four hectares in size.  Farmers strive to protect the environment where they live through responsible water management practices, application of organic fertilizer, and shade grown farming.

Very nice screen and processing - a great first arrival to kick off the Peru season while maintaing a good value.

Tasting Notes:

A good stronger cup of coffee - a very floral aroma - semi-sweet chocolate tones - a little hint of brightness with good body - Smooth and clean. Very versitile everyday drinker.

Roasting Notes: 
We like this coffee at a medium to dark roast. Try extending the roast at the light to medium roast points to build a little more body and undertones.

Rwanda FT. Dukunde Kawa Musasa


New 15/16 Crop!

Always excited for this coffee to arrive - each year is different but equally as stellar - higher acidity this year, much sweeter and very chocolaty.

Rwanda FT Dukunde Kawa Musasa coffee is sourced from family owned farms organized around the Musasa mill located near a gorilla habitat in the Gakenke district of Rwanda. Farmer plots are so small that measurements are based on the numbers of trees, not area of land.  

Farmers who process their coffee at the Musasa mill are members of the Dukunde Kawa Cooperative, which started in 2000 with enough funds to build one wet mill.  In the following years, the Dukunde Kawa Cooperative has built three more wet mills and completed construction of their own dry mill.   More than 80 percent of the cooperative workforce is women, and producer-members have used earnings to improve their standards of living with investments in livestock, access to healthcare, and programs to protect the environment, which won the SCAA 2012 Sustainability Award. 

The quality of the coffee is also internationally recognized, consistently placing as one of the best in the Cup of the Excellence annual auction.    

Tasting Notes:
The aroma is soft and has subtle notes of dried fruit, vanilla, dried oats, and salted mixed nuts.  The flavor is complex.  It has a medium body and silky feel on the tongue.  Initially the flavors are very fine and pleasant light notes of dried figs, plums, and vanilla wafers.  As this coffee glides past your tongue and you’ll get an explosion of dried apricots, cocoa powder and some boozy rum-like notes.  The finish is slightly dry and lingers just enough to have you greedily reaching for another sip.

Roasting Notes:
I would avoid the lighter roast points, a little acidic and grassy tasting - the silky body starts to hit at a medium roast and the darker fruit and cocoa really start to hit right before second crack. I tend to roast it a bit slower to increase the body and darker tones while still roasting before the second crack.

Colombian Medellin Supremo

Fresh off the boat!

Colombia continues to turn out some of the best coffees in the world and Medellin Supremo is no exception.  Medellin is located 5,000 ft. above sea level and is superbly situated in the Andes Range (where all the great Colombians come from).  Medellín is known as “La Ciudad de la Eterna Primavera” or “City of the Eternal Spring” because of the pleasant spring-like climate it enjoys all year.  Supremo denotes the highest grade of Colombian coffee; a guarantee of large, consistent beans.

Tasting Notes:  
The aroma is sweet, freshly cut cedar, spicy, with a touch of cocoa.  The body is medium/full and has a mild and pleasant acidity.  The flavor is very dependant on the roast.  At a Medium Roast you will enjoy soft notes of walnut, cedar and spice, brighter acidity, with more of a baker’s chocolate finish.  Darker roasts will bring out more caramel sweet flavors and hints of a dried dark fruit. 

Roasting Notes:
This bean is very versatile when it comes to roasting; great from light to dark. Be sure to try different roast points for it will greatly vary what flavors are accentuated.  Enjoy a brighter morning cup at a City Roast or take it into an afternoon/evening coffee by roasting it from a Full City to a French roast.

Indonesian RFA Org. Balinese Blue Moon

 

New 2015/16 crop!

The Semi-Washed version of the Bali Kintamani Natural!

Bali is a tiny island– actually, a submerged volcano peak - just off the east coast of Java, with many small coffee farms. The farmers who grow Kintamani Natural belong to cooperative organizations known as Subak Abian (SA) founded on a Hindu philosophy known as “Tri Hita Karana” (the three causes of happiness). SA co-ops foster community in agricultural, social and religious activities, and have been certified Organic since 2008. Pesticides are never used on their coffee farms, and fertilizers are 100% organic.

SA farmers grow almost all heirloom Arabicas, Typica & Bourbon. They use trees such as Erythrina, Tangerine, and Orange to shade the coffee, which improves yield and cup quality and enhances wildlife habitat.

Tasting Notes: 
A very rich, clean, and smooth cup with a hint sweet lemon acidity balanced with a nice chocolaty finish. Medium to full bodied with low acidity, a nice daily cup. Hints of a slight smoky tones can be found, especially in a darker roast.

Roasting Notes: 
I like to take this one to a full city. It is very versatile and will hold almost any roast. Usually i drink this Indo a touch lighter than I take Sumatras.

Indian Monsooned Malabar



Very unique and most think very tasty; usually people have a love/hate relationship with this bean but it is one of our top sellers year in and year out. 

Monsoon Malabar coffee is prepared from Arabica cherries (“cherry” refers to dry-processed coffees in India). After grading, the coffee is transported to the coastal city of Mangalore where the “monsooning” is carried out in large openwalled warehouses. 

During the rainy months of June through August, the coffee is spread inside the warehouses with very good aeration and ventilation at a particular thickness so that the coffee slowly absorbs moisture. After it absorbs sufficient moisture and bloats in size, it has to be periodically bulked and bagged and stacked so as to ensure proper and uniform “monsooning.” This process has to be carried out many times during the months of the monsoon. 

After September, when the rains subside and the temperatures are higher, the ghostly white and swollen beans are sent through the final grading (gravity tables and hand-sorting) in order to obtain the Malabar export quality. The farmers not only produce coffee, they also grow pepper, cardamom, and oranges. Most of the farms are 80 to 100 years old and belong to third generation growers. 

Tasting Notes:
A very full bodied and creamy cup; very dependant on roast. Soft fruit tones at lighter roast points, chocolate, mollases, caramel, along with some earthy (not bad) notes most closeley related to an Indo Sumatra. 

Roasting Notes:
Usually used for espresso at the darker roast points but many of our customers enjoy the single origin drip brew or french press at a slightly lighter roast point.

Honduras Org. Marcala ML "18 Rabbit"
Finca - Dulce Luna/Marlen



The 18 Rabbit Micro lot is a delicious honey-processed coffee. This micro-lot is female-owned and operated and placed highly in the Honduras Cup of Excellence in 2014. 

If you like a stellar cup of coffee - you will not want to miss this one. 

Awesome prep and a way beautiful bean - very dense, strictly high grown - a great example of a very premium Honduran. 

This coffee is directly purchased from the farmers for well above any type of middleman or mill/market pricing - although worth every penny, this is a cup you can feel very good about. Help the farmers by supporting good coffee and they will support us by producing top grade beans :-). 

Tasting Notes:
A very sweet, smooth, clean and floral cup - a bit of raised acidity when compared to most other Honduran coffees. The honey processing leaves it very sweet and crisp with just a hint of a soft fruit tone. Very nice caramel chocolate undertones. Exotic aromatics just add to the wonderful mix of tones. A rare find for honey processing for it will have a honey like tone right around the full city mark. 

Roasting Notes:
An easy and versatile coffee to roast, medium to dark. Medium roast for a brighter/crisper cup with a hint of chocolate, right at 2nd crack has honey like sweetness, a silky body and still just a hint of chocolate.
