Guatemalan Premium SHB Finca La Perla

Guatemala La Perla Premium SHB is sourced from Finca La Perla located in the municipality of Chajul within the department of El Quiche, Guatemala. La Perla coffee has been recognized with top finishes in the Cup of the Excellence for more than a decade. La Perla also invests in HOPE and AGAPE, NGOs that run programs providing access to healthcare and education in the communities that surround La Perla.

La Perla was featured in the show Dangerous Grounds on the travel channel - well worth watching if you haven't seen it.


Tasting Notes:
This cup is very bright and sizzling - some very nice sweet citrus and floral tone right upfront - definitely a very jazzy cup. Medium bodied and very clean - a winner in our book - the above average brightness is balanced with a nice darker malty tone and just a hint of wineyness. Brightest Guat on our list.

Roasting Notes:
Easy to roast; you’ll get a great cup at most roast levels. Lighter roasts accent the fruitier brightness, deeper levels deliver smooth, rich chocolate flavors.

Indonesian RFA Org. Balinese Blue Moon

The new 2014 crop is in and very tasty!

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.

Brazil SCM "Beija Flor" Premium Natural

A blend of Fine Cup/Strictly Soft beans from Bazil's Cerrado and Sul de Minas regions. Blended to capture the best qualities of both regions, and qualified for consistency by SCM, one of Brazil's top exporters.

Tasting Notes:
Gentle acidity with a soft fruit tone at the lighter roast points, medium to full body; soft and very smooth, with sweet to bittersweet chocolate flavor notes and roasted nut undertones. A great single origin drinker or base to you espresso blends.

Roasting Notes:
Here's a coffee for espresso and dark roast fans! Brazils are the basis for many French roast and espresso blends because they deliver great sweetness and body. Excellent for longer roasting times at every roast color, to build body and sweetness.

Indian RFA Arabidecool 
Estate


New 2014 crop!

Sprawling 142 hectares across the famed Baba Budangiri Mountains of the Karnataka State lies the picturesque Arabidacool Estate. On these ranges, the first coffee plants were grown from the seven seeds brought back from Yemen by a Sufi Saint, Baba Budan, while returning from a pilgrimage to Mecca. Arabidacool’s salubrious climate and excellent environment are reflected in a coffee with a distinct cup, characterized by sharp acidity, excellent flavor and a sweet taste. 

Tasting Notes:
A great micro produced Indian coffee - very similar to the mysore nuggets, this is a little bit of a cleaner screen and a bit more crispness in the cup - good spice notes along with just a bit of a floral tone. There’s dark fruit, oak, licorice, and some vanilla tones, like a good dry red wine.  The finish has a subdued brightness to it with just hints of lemon zest.  The body is medium to full depending on roast and brew.

Roasting Notes:
We recommend roasting this bean at a medium to dark roast.  Too light and the wood tones would be too dominate, too dark you will loose its pleasant brightness

Mexican Org. Terruno Nayarita Washed Reserve

This is a farm that holds a special place in our hearts. Gathered around an extinct volcano, Cerro San Juan, a committed group of 260 cooperative coffee farmers are working together to produce arguably the best coffee in Mexico. Terruño Nayarita coffees come from heirloom trees and the word ‘Terruño’ means ‘homestead’. These are farmers that take great pride in their coffee. This is the new 2013 crop! Used and won as a single origin espresso in the Mexican barista championship This is the top screen-size/grade from the Terruno Nayarita Co-op. San Christobal Importers takes great care to find and produce an excellent coffee, making sure farmers use safe, sustainable shade techniques and provide a fair wage to the workers. Check out their webpage; San Christobal. You can see the quality in the beans. Lighter bodied, a super smooth finish, a hint of brightness, and a sweet caramel tone. Similar in character to Island coffees. Can be roasted up to a full city +, we think its best a little lighter.

Tasting Notes:
A very cool and unique Mexican coffee. A little fuller bodied than most years, good sweetness and a bit of a floral caramel note. A bit lower acidity than previous crops which tends to make it shine at a little fuller roast level. The caramel notes tend to turn a bit more chocolaty close to the second crack.

Roasting Notes:
I would shoot for right before the second crack to just into it - a little bit of a rougher cup into second crack but nice chocolate notes with just a hint of a floral aspect. A bit sweeter and smoother right before the second crack but not quite as chocolaty.

Guatemalan Huehue. Premium Flat ML Finca Vista Hermosa "Michicoy"


The Michicoy comes to us from the Finca Vista Hermosa farm in the Huehue region of northwest Guatemala. This farm is third generation family owned and has always upheld the highest standards in coffee growing and processing methods. This farm is a model for many in their shade grown and organic methods. While still grown at a fairly high altitude, the Michicoy microlot is the lowest grown lot at Vista Hermosa so it’s slightly milder and has more herbal tones then the other coffees from this farm, but it’s still a heavy bodied complex cup. Edwin has been producing some of our favorite coffee for years and this does not disappoint.

Tasting Notes:
The aroma has great sweet notes. It reminded us of sugared or apple cider cake doughnuts. There are pleasant herbal and earthy notes in the cup along with chocolate undertones and molasses and caramel sweetness. Virtually no acidity in this cup. Overall a great example of a classic Guatemalan cup of coffee, this will become your go to coffee staple.

Roasting Notes:
We would recommend a medium to dark roast to develop the great chocolate and molasses tones. Avoid light roasts. This is a great go to morning cup of coffee.
