Colombian Supremo Antioquia

Ecuador Flag
Very fresh and clean cup! A great example of what a traditional Colombian cup should be. 

Antioquia is the state/region containing Medellin, very similar in cup profile to our last Medellin offering but contains some beans from the outlying farms not just around the city of Medellin. 

This is a premium screen of a state aggregate (Antioquia), not one farmer in this lot. This type of production is very cool for mixing (should say purposeful blending) cherries from different farms within the region gives a true taste of the area. Basically the dry mill purchases the coffee cherries from the small farmers who do not have processing equipment, the dry mill then processes the cherries and creates lots of different quality and size. In this case, it is a premium top cupping lot from the mill in a supremo screen size (17/18) 

Tasting Notes: Fuller bodied and very clean. Brighter upfront with the lighter roasts, one will get a bit of citrus and floral balanced with a fuller bodied dry toasted walnut like tone. As one pushes more into the strong medium roasts it turns much more chocolaty with a bit of soft fruit in the cup and just a tiny hint of raw acidity. As you convert the acidity in the cup by roasting darker, it breaks down into a slightly fruity factor before getting burned out into the darker roasts. Dark roast are even fuller bodied and very dark toned, low acidity with predominate smoky/chocolaty and nutty tones. 

Roasting Notes: Hard to screw this one up, if shooting for a lighter roast, good to drag out the cup a bit otherwise it will have pretty punchy acidity. If you do not like a slight fruit tone mixing it, shoot for either light or dark, only a bit fruity right before 2nd crack.

2017/18 Mexican Org Terruño Nayarita Washed

Mexican Flag

New 2017/18 crop! Holy smokes, it has been almost two years since we had a top notch washed processed from our buddies in Mexico. We were delighted when this sample showed up and cupped out very nicely!

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. The word ‘Terruño’ means ‘homestead’. These are farmers that take great pride in their coffee.

This is the top screen-size/grade from the Terruño Nayarita Co-op.

San Cristobal Coffee Importers takes great care to find and produce excellent coffee, making sure farmers use safe, sustainable shade techniques and provide a fair wage to the workers. Check out their webpage:
San Cristobal

Can be roasted up to a full city +, we think it's 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.

Peru Org. SHG EP Cajamarca San Ignacio Sebastion Carvajal  Top Lot

Nicaragua Flag

A nice microlot from a single estate in Peru, which is vary rare. Most Peru coffees are co-op driven and contain hundreds if not thousands of farmers controlled by a "union"-like agreement and most commonly centralized processing of all their beans.

The co-op model is not a bad model, they tend to educate on how to grow good beans, control the processing of the coffees which gives it a more standard cup profile and insures a quality cup. The only real downside is the flow of funds, if a single farmer can sell his beans to a consumer and not sell just the cherries to the co-op, they can get a bunch more money for their hard work. Only trick is the farmer must really know what they are doing. 

This is a very high grown coffee, 1700 meters+ and contains Cattura and Bourbon strains. 

Tasting Notes:
A great balanced and clean cup of Peru coffee. Soft and sweeter soft fruit tones upfront with a slight lemon floral note. Very chocolaty in its undertone, goes from smooth chocolate to pretty edgy bakers chocolate into the darker roasts. Medium bodied, a great coffee to sip on all day.

Roasting Notes:
Avoid extremes with the roast. Light and dark tend to be either too bright or too bitter. Anywhere in between is lovely, smooth with defined tastes. I like to shoot close to 2nd crack but not touching it with this guy, handles a couple shades lighter as well.

2017/18 Papua New Guinea – Carpenter Estates – Sigri A/X Highlands

Papua New Guinea Flag

New 2017/18 crop! 

The highlands of PNG are where all the good beans come from - Sigri is on a bit of the easterly edge of the highlands and maintains a true estate. This A/X is not from their estate but I think has the coolest story behind it.

Sigri had a great idea, they ran around to these remote areas and dropped off nice pulping machine, the big trick to producing quality beans it to quickly pulp it after picking. Now the beans could safely without sacrificing too much quality take the transit time to get to the awesome Sigri wetmill. Sigri then takes it from there and gives the beans the same attention to quality as there own estate coffee. Giving it the Sigri name also really help these farmers market and sell there top notch beans to foreign markets which brings in a huge premium to the below market prices they were getting before. 

Tasting Notes:
A very surprisingly nice cup that is pretty different from the Estate coffees, one can see the wilder plants and strains really shine. A little lighter bodied than most PNGs it has some fantastic floral/caramel notes and balance. A bit brighter but by no means a high acidity coffee, gives it almost a Central American spin at the lighter roast points. Darker roast points one can see a bit more classic PNG, bakers chocolate and spice will be the darker roast tones with no hint of acidity. 

Roasting Notes:
Boy we thought this cup really shined a bit lighter, city plus to full city. A little acidity pokes out but adds a lot of sweetness. The cup holds up nicely darker as well but will burn out the bit of caramel pretty close to 2nd crack.

Dominican Barahona Microlot

Dominican Republic Flag

A very cool Co-op production ML coffee from Cafe Kreyol (our Haitian Co-op friends).

Cafe Kreyol goes into some of the most impoverished and troubled areas that are within prime coffee growing territory, organizes farmers, teaches how to correctly process beans, guarantees purchase of the beans at way above market prices ensuring it goes directly to the farmers and strives to really turn around some of the more troubled areas, putting people to work at well above average wages and ensuring future livelihoods.

Joey, the head of Cafe Kreyol, even strives for his US employees the above statement. He finds the hardest working individuals with great work ethics that for one reason or another have really been put down with employment and troubled times to help them recover and build a resume while also being able to help others.

One can feel really good about supporting any of Cafe Kreyols projects and for the most part - really tasty coffees as well.

Cafe Kreyol projects including this one are project coffees, these are not a 0 defect beautiful large screen coffee. It takes around 5-7 years to really turn out a prime coffee operation and most of these are on year 2-3. Great tasting cups but keep in mind - not the world's best screen.

Barahona is a state and city in the Dominican Republic and the surrounding area is where most of the renowned coffee comes from.

Good altitude and soil conditions really bring out a bit more of an islandy characteristic than the other Haitian and Dominican coffees.

Tasting Notes:
A great classic Dominican cup with a bit more islandy acidity than we've seen in the past. A stronger, fuller bodied cup with a lot of complex darker tones and a slight balance of islandy floral tones. Chocolate, tobacco earthiness, molasses are some of the first tones to hit the tongue and fade into a sweeter floral tone that strikes a bit of that nice islandy characteristic.

Roasting Notes:
A really nice medium to dark roast coffee. A bit underdeveloped tasting at lighter roasts. Traditionally in the Dominican, they roast pretty dark and the coffee will have decently above average complexity at the darker roast but it will also mute up a bit of that islandy acidity that makes this way cool in my mind. I shoot for a full city roast - good strength and retains a little bit more sweetness and crispness.

Honduran SHG EP Santa Rosa Copan

Honduran Flag

New 17/18 crop. 

A couple years back we got to meet with 10-15 of their headliner producers. You could tell this co-op meant the world to them and really helps improve their standard of living while giving them the toolset to make some stellar beans. Although i really enjoyed meeting them - one could tell what it meant to them to see and meet the end users of their product. 

Our Honduras Santa Rosa SHG EP is sourced from small community cooperatives working together with Beneficio Santa Rosa, located in Santa Rosa de Copan, Honduras.  Beneficio Santa Rosa was founded in 2005 to facilitate the commercialization and export of high quality coffee from the western region of Honduras. Through an innovative partnership with TechnoServe (a nonprofit organization that develops business solutions to overcome poverty by linking people to information, capital and markets), Beneficio Santa Rosa formed Mejoramiento Agrícola Sostenible (MAS), a project that supports more than 6,000 coffee producers with technical assistance resulting in higher quality coffee and increased income for producers, while protecting the environment. Beneficio Santa Rosa is also firmly invested in community development as one of the founding members of Amigos del Café, an organization established to assist coffee producers with education, medical assistance and food security.

Tasting Notes:
This cup very smooth, rich and clean. fuller bodied and lower acidity the main tone is going to be pretty chocolaty - a deep semi-sweet chocolate smokey note balanced with just a hint of a floral aspect. This Honduran is a sweet, balanced, clean coffee with a nice spice note and slight wineyness and a little caramel at the lighter roasts. 

A very nice single origin breakfast coffee - smooth, mellow and chocolaty a great cup to wake up to. 

Roasting Notes:
An easy and versatile coffee to roast, medium to dark. A faster roast will highlight the bright, clean flavor notes.
