Indonesian Sumatra Gr. 1 Mandheling

Ecuador Flag

Sumatra Mandheling Grade 1 coffee is sourced from family-owned farms located in North Sumatra Province on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. The coffee is wet-hulled, a uniquely Indonesian processing method in which the coffee parchment is removed before the final drying is completed, producing a hallmark Indonesian flavor.

Tasting Notes
A big strong prime example of a classic Indonesian Sumatra coffee. Big bodied, earthy, smoky and chocolaty - low acidity and creamy. A great coffee for your house blends or those who are earthy Sumatra fans.

Roasting Notes:
Just before to just into 2nd crack is going to make this coffee shine. Lighter roasts will be less chocolaty and more earthy - which is not recommended. A quicker roast will help retain as much sweetness as possible. This Sumatra will roast a little uneven due to the processing - judge it by the darker beans.

Honduran Org. Santa Rosa Beneficio - San Marcos

Mexican Flag

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 Org. Santa Rosa is sourced from small community cooperatives working together with Beneficio Santa Rosa, located in San Marcos, 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.

El Salvador Cerro Las Ranas Honey Processed

Nicaragua Flag

Cerro Las Ranas (the Hill of Frogs) coffee is named after the farm’s lagoon that is populated by thousands of frogs located in Apaneca within the department of Ahuachapan, El Salvador. 

The coffee is produced by JASAL, a family owned operation where Jose Antonio Salaverria and his sons take great pride in their meticulous attention to detail, from year-round farm management to quality control in the cupping lab, and everything in between. In the pulped natural process (also called a honey process), JASAL pulps perfectly ripened cherries and then dries the coffee beans, still covered in mucilage, on clay patios while constantly turning the beans to ensure even drying.

Tasting Notes:
A little thinner bodied and a bit wilder in its tones, a little higher acidity which gives it a lot of sweetness - a hint of a ferment note providing a very soft fruit tone balancing with a stronger bakers chocolate undertone - as the cup cools you get less bakers chocolate and a little cool sweeter malty/caramel/nutty spin. Darker roasts will be low acidity, a bit sweeter and more of a smokey dry malty tone. 

Roasting Notes:
I think a city to full city roast is the way to go, gives a really nicely balanced cup. Taken to a dark roast it gets a little rougher around the edges but gets even more malty chocolaty, lighter roasts are recommended as well but will promote a more acidic and fruity edge but also give a little underdeveloped tone unless you let it set up for 3-5 days.

Indian Mysore Nuggets - Extra Bold

Papua New Guinea Flag

Year in to year out, this is always one of our most popular coffees, at times we have trouble keeping it in stock! New 2018 Crop!

Mysore coffees are the best known and the most popular of all Indian coffees, they posses good body and snappy acidity. The overall taste profile is very unique, with spicy overtones. These spicy overtones come from the cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, cloves and pepper that grow alongside the coffee trees.

This lot is full bodied, with a rich full taste and moderate acidity. Very interesting and exotic, I like to roast this coffee a little darker, just into the second crack. 

Tasting Notes:
Indian Mysore Nuggets have been a favorite of Burman Coffee and customers for many years and this crop does not disappoint. The aroma is nutty, woody, and some slight smokiness. The taste is classic. Many of the notes in the aroma come through in the flavor like walnuts and some smoke. There’s dark fruit, oak, licorice, and some vanilla spice, like a good dry red wine. The finish has a subdued brightness to it with just hints of lemon zest at lighter roast points. The body is medium to full depending on roast and brew. There’s a reason people keep coming back to this bean. It’s a smooth all around great stronger cup of coffee.

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.

2017/18 Papua New Guinea – Carpenter Estates - Sigri Kula Peaberry

Dominican Republic Flag

New 2017/18 crop!

This season we went with what they call Kula processing. Kula processing means only dried on raised drying beds and double screened via color sorter and double hand picking. Basically means the best of the best from Carpenter Estates.

These Sigri Estate coffees are gems - nothing like your traditional PNG coffees. Almost a 0 defect screen with immaculate processing. You can just look at the beans and see the care and time that went into them. Sigri has been in a game for a long time but within the last 5 years has taken quality to a different level. 

As with all of our relationships coffees, not only are they changing the coffee game for themselves, but also the whole area and region they are in. They are raising wages and education (and quality) for every farmer around them - the big project this year to unleash for the locals 

All coffee bearing the Sigri name is grown at over 5000 feet elevation. Sigri considers soil and water conservation as a priority, and, the plantation is bird and eco-friendly. The plantation employs a medium density shade strategy, using two types of shade trees. This promotes even ripening of coffee cherries and provides habitat for at least 90 species of birds.

Tasting Notes:
Similar to the AA bean but with a bit stronger fruit tones coming through. Silky smooth and very clean. Lower acidity with good sweetness and balance. Very chocolaty/caramel type cup of coffee with some very cool nutty(almond) accents. If you roast before 2nd crack, which is preferred, one can balance in some melon and fruit acidity into the mix which is a big plus to the depth of flavor. 

Roasting Notes:
Good almost anywhere - I would still avoid real light roasts for you will find a bit of raw acidity and underdeveloped darker tones. City plus to as dark as you want to go. To see it shine, keep it before 2nd crack. Dark roasts will impress dark roast fans but will burn out many tones that make this cup pretty stellar.

2018 Nicaraguan SHG RFA Selva Negra Washed Processed

Honduran Flag

Nicaraguan Selva Negra coffee is cultivated in the most ecological, environmentally and socially friendly way possible. Selva Negra's history is in many ways the history of the coffee in Nicaragua altogether. In the 1880's the Nicaraguan government invited young German immigrants to come and settle in Nicaragua in order to promote coffee growing in the northern highlands. Many young immigrants accepted the offer, thus forming the main coffee plantations of the country; many of them bare names of their motherland.

Selva Negra's (Black Forest) Coffee Estate is called Hammonia, Latin for Hamburg. Located approximately 4,000 ft. above sea level, Hammonia has been producing fine old style Arabica coffee for over 100 years. Eddy Kühl & Mausi Kühl-Hayn, the farm's proprietors are descendants of two of these original German immigrants - Alberto Vogl and Klaus KÜhl.

Selva Negra Estate Coffee is grown at a high altitude in a shaded environment. This allows the bean to have a slow development cycle which instills an intense and fulfilling flavor to each bean. The coffee is not only 100% Arabica, but more importantly it is grown on a large percentage of Bourbon and Typica coffee trees (which produce higher quality beans than other varieties of coffee trees). The region of Matagalpa, Nicaragua is mountainous with excellent volcanic soil for the coffee growing enjoyment.

Tasting Notes:
This Nicaragua cup is a classic 'Central' with clean and sweet floral aromatics. Medium body with bright and lively front end tones balanced with a malty dark tone. A bit of sweetness upfront with a rich mouthfeel, this is a prime example of a top rated Nic. A great mix of light and dark tones, very balanced. 

Roasting Notes:
A very versatile roaster - a bit more acidity than the honey processed - leaves it a little bit front loaded at lighter roast points. We recommend a medium to dark roast to get nice balance.
